Global Standards Project Delegate R. Raghunathan is an Assistant Professor, Management Group, Birla Institute of Tech. & Science (BITS), in Pilani. Raghunathan holds a Master in Foreign Trade (MFT), M. Phil. (Management), and a Ph.D. He has been using flipped learning for more than 10 years. “I always believed the practice of management needs a multidisciplinary approach and hence teaching in silos won’t help in solving real-time problems,” says Raghunathan.
Global Standards Project Delegate Stephanie Quarato is an 8th-grade math teacher at Jared Eliot Middle school. Stephanie began her flipped learning journey more than four years ago and will continue this journey in a new role. She recently accepted the position of Mathematics Interventionist and Specialist and said, “I plan to continue using the flipped approach, but I am going to flip the RtI [Response to Intervention) program using the in-class flip model.” Stephanie also intends to flip her professional development for the staff, leaving more time for teachers to talk and work when they meet.
Professor João Luís Monney de Sá Paiva is the President of the Polytechnic of Viseu. He holds a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from the Faculty of Science and Technology of the University of Coimbra and holds a master’s degree in thermal engineering from the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto. In March 2018, President de Sá Paiva signed an agreement adopting the FLGI v1.0 Flipped Learning Training Standards. IPV became one of the first 19 higher education institutions to adopt the training standards.

“I have been working in the area of flipped learning for more than a decade. This forum would help me to learn from my fellow colleagues and also provide an opportunity to share my learning and experience with the global audience. I am also interested in making a worthwhile contribution to the field of flipped learning.”
“I want to be a delegate to the Global Standards Project because I feel like I have learned a lot about what I wish I would have known when I first started flipping my classroom five years ago. I believe that my experiences and my growth as a flipped classroom teacher could really help other individuals who are ready and willing to jump on board. I want to be a delegate to help teachers feel more successful right from the start. I want to help be a part of changing our education system to align it more towards the personal needs of our students. With the Global Standards Project, I know more teachers and administrators would be eager to learn about and implement a flipped classroom.”
“In the context of Polytechnic of Viseu policy of improving teaching and learning processes, moving to a context in which students build their knowledge through an active learning approach is fundamental. When we tried to identify good teaching and learning practices, where to find comfort for many activities that were already being developed, the Flipped Global Initiative was soon on the way as one of the most mature and consistent on the international scene.”
Susan is a FLGI Top 100 teacher, with over 20 years of teaching experience. She currently teaches 6th grade math at Creekside Middle School, and enjoys integrating technology into her 1:1 math class. She is currently leading the way for Flipped Learning at her building. Susan is Flipped Learning 3.0 Level -II Certified and a founding member of the FLGI International Faculty.
