Applying 'flip the classroom'

This is how I have applied 'flip the classroom' to our 'Coaching with Emotional Intelligence' programme.

The objectives: 

After completing this learning programme you will:-   
  • Understand the importance of coaching to individual and organisation success.
  • Be able to effectively use the skills, behaviours and tools of coaching.
  • Have completed at least 1 coaching assignments and received feedback from your coachee and your coach.
  • Have assessed your capability to coach, identified your strengths and areas needing improvement, plus created a development plan for the coming year.

This is a ‘flip the classroom’ programme that has the following attributes:-       
  • You will need to learn most of the theory via online modules prior to attending twilight sessions.
  • You will have access to coaches who will work with you throughout the programme.
  • Reflection is a very important part of the programme so you will need to commit to maintain a learning blog throughout the programme and sharing the link with your coaches and fellow participants.
