Center for Teaching and Learning What is “flipping”? Flipping the classroom is a “pedagogy-first” approach to teaching. In this approach in-class time is “re-purposed” for inquiry, application and assessment in order to better meet the needs of the individual learners. Students gain control of the learning process through studying course material outside of class, using readings, pre-recorded video lectures (using technology such as Panopto), or research assignments.

Finding the right resource to support flipped classrooms in the UK What if traditional methods of classroom teaching and ‘homework’ were switched? Teaching professionals have constantly looked at improving ways of raising learner engagement and attainment.

So, if you are speaking English with another student who speaks English as an additional language, whether or not English is your main language, you are both using ELF (VOICE/FAQ 2009). ELF has been studied by linguists interested in how its grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation is different from other varieties of English (Seidlhofer 2005). If you have grown up speaking English, shouldn't ELF be easy?
