WHAT WE DO
The FLIP-IDEAL project supports adult educators to use the flipped learning approach with their learners.
Take a look at the introduction video and find out what some of the participants in the project have to say!
RESOURCES ON FLIPPED LEARNING
THEORY BEHIND FLIPPED LEARNING
The theoretical context explores the pedagogy behind the flipped classroom approach, reviews existing research and theories of flipped classroom in a range of educational contexts and settings. The primary focus is on the challenges related to teaching adults who are developing basic skills in literacy, numeracy and digital skills. This output provides a theoretical framework for the FLIP-IDEAL project as well as an understanding and insight into how flipped learning will impact learners.
To complement theoretical framework, we have created an additional resource to demonstrate what the flipped approach might look like in practice. ‘Get Connected’ is a user-friendly, digital teaching and learning resource, designed to support adult educators to use the flipped learning approach with basic skills learners who are developing digital skills.
ONLINE TRAINING COURSE ON FLIPPED LEARNING
The online course for adult educators will give a practical view on how to implement flipped learning with students learning basic skills. Online course is based on adult educators’ experiences and case studies using flipped approach, and includes video clips which illustrate both the theoretical and practical context of flipped learning with adult learners.

GUIDELINES ON FLIPPED LEARNING
The goal of these guidelines is to support adult educators in creating good quality content for flipped learning in adult education. The online magazine gives a comprehensive introduction of what a flipped classroom could mean in adult education context, and what educators need to take into account when starting with flipped classroom.
The guidelines in English:
Language versions in Finnish, Italian, Slovenian and Dutch are available on the language version websites.
OPEN BADGES ON FLIPPED LEARNING
Open Badges are a means of recognising achievement and effort associated with specific skills or knowledge.
The FLIP-IDEAL project has created and tested an innovative system of Open Badges in order to:
1) Assess and accredit the skills within this project and its training for educators;
2) Develop a pilot model to be extended also for other skills, and potentially for students;
3) Set up guidelines for the design, implementation and issuing of open badges in adults' education.
