Strategies for Applying the Flipped Classroom Model for Business Learning
Jim Recker, Training Specialist, Learning Solutions, Citrix Online

Flipped learning—courseware and recorded content serving as the initial element of a learning experience, with live virtual sessions and social and collaborative tools supplementing and enhancing the learning experience—has the potential to increase learning effectiveness, lower operational costs, and get better retention and more effective application of the learning. The model has created tremendous buzz in the education community, but is it viable for business learning?

Citrix believes that effective use of the flipped learning model fits very nicely into the daily business routine, and can transform business learning, improve learning outcomes, and reduce operational costs.
