A week before EVO Flipped learning for Language teaching.

I am so excited. This is the week where we get enrolments for the Electronic Village Online (EVO) session called Flipped Learning for Language teaching. So far, the journey as a co-moderator (or just a general helper) has been really interesting.

The weeks were broken down into an introductory week where FL was introduced along with the learning platforms which we would use to access content and be able to interact and reflect on our learning. The following four weeks were split up focusing on the four separate fundamental pillars of FL called FLIP, but more of this further down.
