The Flipped MOOC:
From the beginnings of this 2nd decade of the 21st Century, among the various innovative pedagogical models that were explored, it is the ‘ Flipped Teaching’ model that has seen significant success in transforming learners from passive reluctant to active enthusiastic learners. Our own experiments recently also validated this finding.
We are therefore proposing to make available to learners, learning resources as short learning objects in different formats of text, images, audio or video to engage with and attempt certain tasks to elucidate their understanding. They will then make comments and ask questions or raise doubts and the instructor in the synchronous session will essentially respond to these inputs.
And a recording of this session will become available as a resource to subsequent cohorts.
Academic Calendar: Comprises 6 Terms of 2 months (8 weeks) each.

To learn more about Flipped Teaching and get all the guidance to successfully deploy flipped teaching in the classroom, the micro-MOOC on the Flipped Classroom would be of help.
