✍🏻Mentors Tasks & Responsibilities

As a mentor in our program, you'll play a crucial role in facilitating flipped learning classrooms!
What is a flipped classroom?
You may have encountered the traditional classroom before, where we go to class to listen to teacher’s explanation, then after class, we’ll complete the homework given by our teacher. The flipped classroom, as the name suggest, “flip” this method. Students are introduced to key concepts before class started and refine the learning in the form of active learning process in the classroom.
