‘Flipped classroom’ learning at TACC
On 5 July 2018, Thurrock Adult Community College held their annual tutor conference with a theme of ‘Being Brilliant’ including a flipped classroom model, where tutors took part in collaborative peer to peer learning to deepen their understanding and ensure they continue to deliver a provision with the highest standards of learning to meet the needs of the people of Thurrock.
