Teaching Geodesy - Training
For teachers with CAD elements & flipped teaching

A new approach to the teaching geodesy at the vocational school with elements of flipped teaching & CAD. 

Flipped teaching:  The aim is to “flip the space & open your mind”!  Flipped Learning is a pedagogical approach in which direct instruction moves from the group learning space to the individual learning space, and the resulting group space is transformed into a dynamic, interactive learning environment where the educator guides students as they apply concepts and engage creatively in the subject matter.

CAD - widely used in geodesy, surveying is a technology for design and technical documentation, which replaces manual drafting with an automated process. How to introduce CAD elements at school (free educational programmes and use).

Goals:

  • Learn about strategies & digital resources for educators 

  • Transform the classroom into a student - centered/project - centered experience 

  • Create flipped academic materials (videos)

  • Learn elements of CAD

Training includes:

  • Introduction to adult learning & flipped learning toolkit “Playing approach to complement traditional teaching”.

  • Upper Secondary School (age group 16-18),  High school (age group 19+) training with teachers, job -shadowing.

  • Review of teaching materials & flip materials.

  • Review of CAD materials, which can be used at school.

  • Using other instructors' videos: Alternatives to making your own videos. 

  • Sites, which we explore: MIT YouTube, Webcast Berkeley, University of Oxford Podcasts, Stanford YouTube, CornellCast, Khan Academy, TED Ed, Academic Earth.

  • Visiting school & seeing flipped sessions in practice.

  • Creating in CAD useful materials.
