How does a flipped faculty meeting work?
Think about the following when planning your flipped faculty meeting:
- Decide what information you need to present to your faculty that does not need face-to-face interaction.
- Decide how you would like to present that information to your faculty.
- Slide presentation
- Audio recording
- Decide what the best platform is for presenting the information.
- Be consistent with the platform and procedure you choose.
- Make sure the information is accessible to teachers. Train them on the system if needed, and make sure they have time to practice with help before sending them out on their own.
- Provide a way for teachers to give feedback, ask questions, and schedule face-to-face time if needed.
- Create a way to ensure your teachers are accessing the information.
Why would I want to flip my faculty meeting?
The idea behind a flipped faculty meeting is to help you are your teachers:
- Save time and energy.
- Work more efficiently.
- Be prepared for face-to-face professional development.
- Refer back to previous training and information whenever needed.
Sometimes the flipped faculty meeting is strictly business. Sometimes it is background information that helps prepare teachers for the face-to-face faculty meeting they have later in the month. Whatever the principal chooses to present, it needs to be presented in a clear, flexible manner to help everyone be more efficient and take responsibility for learning the information.
