Whether it is called “flipping the classroom”,"flipped training” or simply “the flip method”, curiosity about this new model for delivering training is appearing everywhere. Early adopters are enthusiastic and initial reports of effectiveness are encouraging. And just like any new concept the misconceptions, confusion about what it really is, when it is applicable and the usual uneven implementation experiences exist. This is your opportunity to develop a foundation about this method to understand if it would be a fit for your training repertoire or your organization’s training strategy for either ILT or e-learning.

In response to high demand, this is a second offering of the June 19th event held in the South Bay. Join us as we explore the currentJoin us as we explore the current state of “flipping” and its impact on the learning process. While being applied creatively in K-12 and higher education settings, both in the classroom and online, there are many questions about how the model applies to workplace learning. Before starting down the path of this potentially effective model now is the time to first understand the conditions that promote success, the tools and skills needed for effective design and how to evaluate readiness for implementation.  This “look before you leap” session can provide you with a foundation for progressing in a direction and at a pace that fits you, your learners and your organization.

At the end of this session you will be able to:
  • Define “flipped training” as it applies to workplace learning.
  • Understand “flipping’s” relationship to adult learning principles.
  • Determine the most conducive learning cultures and learning environments for its use.
  • Differentiate “flipping” from assigning pre-work, project learning, blended learning, edutainment, gamification and other action learning methods.
  • Review examples for both ILT and e-learning delivery.
  • Know the developer/trainer skills and tools required to be effective.
  • Find free resources to learn more and to practice developing your own skills.


Paul Anjeski’s career of over 25 years has covered the release and initial implementation of a wide range of learning theories, methods and delivery tools. As a trainer, instructional designer, program/project manager or consultant he has led the initial implementation of “new” concepts including: synchronous distributed learning, asynchronous distributed learning, blended learning, project-based learning, subscription learning and now the “flipped” method to name a few.

With both rousing successes as well as disappointing failures he brings “real-world” lessons learned to his work along with an understanding of the importance of organization culture and systems to the change process. Valued for his skills in the development and delivery of “train the trainer” programs Paul brings passion and vitality to his presentations.

As a lifelong learner he remains current in workplace learning principles and practices as a National ASTD member actively involved in the Human Capital, Workforce Development, Learning & Development and Learning Technologies, communities of practice. He is a longtime member of the planning committee for the University of Wisconsin Annual Conference on Distance Teaching and Learning.  He serves on the Board of the ASTD Golden Gate Chapter.
