Google Mail - Flipped Training Session
A Technology for the Office Series Workshop
Presented by Christopher Taverna, Professional Development Center
Wednesday, September 2, 2015, 10:00am-10:50am
W207 Thompson Hall

What is flipped training? Flipping is an instructional strategy that moves the delivery of some instructional content online and outside of the classroom, allowing us to dedicate more time of our in-person session to answering questions and solving problems.

For Google Mail, I have prepared a series of short (the longest video is 5 minutes) videos covering many of the topics usually covered in the level 1 & 2 sessions I have offered previously. You can watch as many (or as few) videos as you choose to and answer a brief 4 question survey before the in-person session.

Thank you for participating in this alternative method of delivering training. I appreciate your feedback!

The form, which includes the videos, is at: https://goo.gl/i5Adbi
