In the Beginning
The Global Standards Project began with the Flipped Learning International Faculty in 2017. The initial aim was to establish “the gold standard” for Flipped Learning training. The next stage began with an expanded initiative to establish a global framework for Flipped Learning practice. On February 2, 2018, FLGI announced the co-chairs of the Global Standards Community (GSC). The chairpersons include: Dr. Eric Mazur, the Balkanski Professor of Physics at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education; Dr. Caroline Fell Kurban, Director of MEF University’s Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching in Turkey; Dr. Raul Santiago Campion, Professor of Didactics and Pedagogy at University of La Rioja, Spain; Dr. Gwo-Jen Hwang, Chair Professor, Graduate Institute of Digital Learning and Education, National Taiwan University of Science and Technology; Robyn Brinks Lockwood, intructor Stanford Language Center, and Jon Bergmann, Chairman and Chief Academic Officer of the Flipped Learning Global Initiative. The standards project was expanded to include input from the worldwide Flipped Learning community in March of 2018. Delegates were invited to make recommendations, discuss the proposed standards, and vote on the final draft later this year. In the first three days, the project received 249 delegate applications from educators in 47 countries. In March the first 19 schools adopted the v 1.0 FLGI training standard. First adopters included elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, and universities from the USA to Australia and Taiwan. See the update section at the bottom of this page.
