What is "Reverse Instruction"?

What is "flipped learning," aiming to raise the level of corporate training? Hello, I am Takemoto of the Marketing Department. It has been two months since I joined the company... I am now in the OJT training program. I am sure that there are many companies that are currently conducting training as we are. However "Is it safe to conduct the same training as before?" "We have training programs, but they are not as effective as we had expected..." "What kind of training should we provide? What kind of training should we provide? We are sure that those of you in charge of training have had the experience of thinking, "What kind of training should we provide? Even if you have prepared a variety of training programs, it is meaningless if the participants do not show "training results". In order to solve such problems, I would like to recommend the introduction of "flipped learning. By introducing flipped learning into corporate training, participants can learn practical skills more efficiently. In this paper, we will introduce an overview of flipped learning, its merits and demerits, and the expected effects of introducing flipped learning into corporate training programs.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Implementing Flipped Learning Expected Benefits of Flipped Learning for Corporate Training QuizGenerator" for creating flipped learning materials Summary What is the teaching method for flipped learning? Reversed learning is called "flipped learning" because it "reverses" previous learning methods. Normally, students acquire knowledge in class and consolidate it at home. In contrast, flipped learning is a learning method in which students acquire knowledge through "e-learning" and "video materials" before class, and then consolidate their knowledge through "group work" and "exercises" in class. Advantages and disadvantages of using flipped learning While there are many advantages to implementing inverted learning for teachers and students, there are also disadvantages. Let's look at what advantages and disadvantages there are. Advantage 1. Self-paced learning In flipped learning, students study the content of the class at home before taking the class. Therefore, you can learn at your own pace. Students can spend more time on areas they do not understand. You can study the lesson content over and over again, so you can understand the content. The above allows you to study at your own pace and deepen your understanding. Advantage 2. Increased motivation to learn In flipped learning, students can ask questions about content they did not understand in prior learning. Through group work, students can ask questions of the teacher and other students to better consolidate their understanding. Therefore, it is expected that students will feel that they enjoyed and understood the material, which will motivate them to learn more. Advantage 3. Students' level of understanding can be checked. In flipped learning, there is no need to explain the content of the class, so teachers and students have more time to engage directly with each other. This allows teachers to quickly identify and instruct students who are having difficulty with class content. For teachers, being able to check students' understanding on the spot is a great advantage. Disadvantage 1. Need to set aside time for learning Flipped learning requires students to study in advance before class. This is a factor that can reduce student motivation... Therefore, it is necessary to support students so that they can study well in advance. Disadvantage 2. It takes time and effort to prepare teaching materials and training. The teacher needs to create the learning materials for the students, which is time-consuming and costly. For example, it is time-consuming to prepare training materials while also performing other duties. So, how can we reduce the time and cost? It is... By using e-learning, you can reduce the time and cost. What is e-learning? What is e-Learning? What is e-Learning Overview About e-Learning This page introduces the origin of e-Learning, a brief description, and our e-Learning system. Overview The benefits of e-Learning... Benefits of Flipped Learning Expected from Corporate Training The benefits of "flipped learning" are not limited to educational settings. It has been introduced into many corporate training programs as an educational method for human resource development. Here, we will introduce the effects of "flipped learning" in corporate training, comparing it with conventional corporate training. Conventional Corporate Training There are cases in which participants are not able to demonstrate their abilities in the field or in practice even though conventional corporate training is conducted. The reasons for this are Some participants do not understand the content of the training. Because the training is just a listening session Participants' knowledge and skills are not consistent. When the above occurs, time and costs are wasted. However, by utilizing "flipped learning," training can be conducted in a state where knowledge is firmly established. Introducing Flipped Learning into Corporate Training In conventional corporate training programs, most of the content is knowledge, which cannot be applied to practical work. However, by introducing flipped learning into training, participants can acquire "more effective learning and more practical skills" compared to conventional training. The reasons for this are Participants are more motivated to learn if they know in advance that the training is practical. Participants can improve their skills through role-playing, discussions, and other practical activities. Participants can review the videos at a later date to consolidate their understanding of the material they did not understand. By introducing flipped learning in corporate training, the effects of training can be demonstrated in practical work. It also improves the motivation of participants to learn and further enhances the quality of training.

Three ways to study in your spare time

Three tips to study in your spare time

Recommended for Working Professionals!" 3 study methods for your skimming time. Hello everyone, it is nice to meet you. My name is Takemoto, and I joined the company in November of this year. You will probably see me on the QuizGenerator blog from now on. I look forward to working with you. The theme of this month's article is. [Recommended for Working People!

Want to know how to study efficiently I want to make the most of my study time. I want to make the most of my study time. Thank you very much for your understanding and cooperation. Click here for the Table of Contents 1. Study method 1: Listening and studying in your spare time 2. Study Method 2: Reading Reference Books 3. Study Method 3: Study with QuizGenerator 4. Conclusion Study Method 1: Study by Listening and Streaming Let me quickly introduce you to the study by listening. What is "kikiyori-nagashi" study? A listen-and-learn study is as follows Listening to English audio Listening to videos from schools and other sources. Listening to your own recordings Listening to your own recordings. In other words, you can acquire skills and knowledge just by listening to them. Is it effective just by listening and playing along? In conclusion, simply listening is not effective. If you keep on listening, you will not be able to understand what you hear. If you continue to leave unfamiliar content unattended, you will not be able to understand it. It is only a supplementary study method. For example Have you ever had the experience of not being able to concentrate on what the other person is saying because you are concerned about what the other person is saying when they say something you don't understand? In the same way, when you study by listening, you cannot continue to study because you are distracted by terms you don't understand. Therefore, you should understand the content you do not understand beforehand before proceeding with your study of the listening comprehension. Tips for kikinori-nagashi study Earlier, we mentioned that simply listening is not effective. However, knowing the tips of kikiyori-nagashi study will increase the effectiveness of your learning. 1. Start with content that is appropriate for your level. Instead of suddenly starting with difficult content, start with content that you can understand. If you don't understand a term you don't understand, you won't understand it even if you listen to it. When learning something new, it is easier to concentrate and more motivated to study if you start from an easy place. Therefore, start studying from the content that is appropriate for your level. 2. Listen with the content in mind from time to time. Try to listen to the lesson with an awareness of what content you are currently studying, even if it is just to check. This will help you understand the content by organizing it in your mind. When you listen to others, it is easier for them to visualize what you are trying to say if you organize it in your mind instead of just listening to them. Try listening with an awareness of the content, even if it is only once in a while. 3. Repeat input and output The relationship between input and output is important for achieving results. No matter how much knowledge and experience you input, if you do not output it well, it will not necessarily lead to results and achievements. When a person repeatedly outputs input information, it will be retained in his or her memory. For example Have you ever looked at a kanji or English word that you had inputted once and could not remember how to read it? Have you ever had such an experience? If you have such an experience, it may be due to a lack of output. By using what you have learned in your studies (output), you can make it stick more firmly in your mind. Therefore, in the same way that you study by listening, you should actually output what you hear. By following the above methods, your comprehension will improve and the content will naturally take root in your mind. In addition, listening to the same content over and over again will further improve your comprehension. Study method 2 that can be done in your spare time: Read reference books From here, we will introduce the study method of reading reference books. Be careful when buying reference books When you start studying, don't you end up buying a lot of reference books? I also buy a lot of reference books, thinking "I like this one" or "Oh, this one is good too. This one is good too. However, this is the wrong way. Here is why. You buy a lot of reference books and feel satisfied. You feel like you've done a lot of studying just by buying reference books. They give up on studying. Therefore, think about why you need to buy reference books. Buying one reference book is enough. There is no need to buy a lot of them because many of the contents are similar. Before buying a reference book, make sure you have a clear purpose as to why you need it. Note that buying a reference book without a clear purpose will not motivate you. Read reference books as if you were reading a book. It is effective to study by reading reference books in your spare time. This is because Because you can grasp the whole of the reference book. Reading a book over and over again improves your understanding of the contents. Let me introduce what the above means in detail. 1. Because you can grasp the entirety of the reference book. First of all, you should read the book from beginning to end. This is because you will be able to grasp the contents of the exam and check your weak points. If you understand the entire contents, you can focus on your goal, and your motivation will increase as your goal becomes clearer. Also, if you don't understand something, put a sticky note or marker on it. This will allow you to keep track of what you don't understand and will come in handy later when you read it over and over again. Therefore, start by grasping the entire reference book. 2. Reading a book over and over again will improve your understanding of its contents. Reading a reference book only once is not enough to understand its contents. Textbooks and books cannot be understood just by reading them once, so they must be read repeatedly. The same is true of reference books: by reading them repeatedly, you will be able to retain the content in your memory and understand it.
