People participating in the workshop will use cameras (it will be acceptable using the smartphone camera). Each participant will tell 3 different autobiographical stories, one of which will consist of 3 photos, one of 6 photos and one of 9 photos. During the first day of training, participants will learn about photography, painting and techniques where they will learn how to best use cameras and how to convey specific emotions and messages through photography. On the second day, work will have to explore biographical narratives and reflect on the stories that participants wish to express through photography. The next part will be field work (participants will take photos telling their stories). On the last day, they will complete all fieldwork and present the results to other participants. The workshop will be conducted by an operator filmmaker and photographer. The training will result in learning new ways of activating seniors and developing creativity; extending the professional competences of participating educators - employees and volunteers from partner organizations.

⦁  METHOD:Flipped Classroom

⦁   WHEN: Gdansk Festival of Light, Gradowa Hill,  14.05.2023Gdansk University of Technology, 16.06.2023 

⦁   NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS:We involved more than 30 seniors. 

⦁    DESCRIPTION:The concept of the flipped classroom, originally developed for students, has found its way into adult education and has proven to be particularly beneficial for the elderly. The theory behind the flipped classroom is simple: instead of traditional lectures where information is delivered in the classroom, learners access educational content at home through pre-recorded videos or online resources. In practice, this means that elderly learners can watch instructional videos, read articles, or complete interactive exercises at their own pace, taking advantage of the convenience of technology. This approach allows for a more personalized learning experience, where classroom time is dedicated to discussions, problem-solving, and practical application of knowledge. The flipped classroom model promotes active engagement, critical thinking, and collaboration among elderly learners, fostering a deeper understanding of the subject matter and facilitating social interaction, all of which contribute to a fulfilling and effective learning experience.More than 30 seniors, participants of different U3A in Poland took part in the flipped classroom activities. There were people from Aleksandrów Łódzki, Kamienna Góra, Redzikowo, Oborniki Śląskie, Suwałki, Ścinawa, Tychy, Uniejów, Ustka, Wolsztyn, Stryj.The subject proposed for the flipped classroom was titled “Walk or bike around Gdansk University of Technology campus”. Materials (films, maps, presentations) were send to participants in advance.  They were walking around the University campus having maps and presentations (attached). They were asked for finding answers for questions about history, buildings, architecture details, as well as they were asked for making photos. At the end they were asked about possibility of using the similar approach in their cities.  

⦁    FEEDBACK:All participants declared they will to repeat such a game in their environment. They quality of the online materials were evaluated very high.  

⦁    PLANS:We plan to include Flipped Classroom as a permanent offer for seniors because this method promotes active engagement, critical thinking and collaboration among elderly learners.
