After the welcome speech by the hosting institution, a presentation was held by Dr. habil. János Győri (Eötvös Loránd University, Faculty of Education and Psychology) titled Flipped teaching, Flipped learning - old method in a new cover?

Ildikó Dr. Sediviné Balassa and Ildikó Babócsy, representatives of the project partner SZÁMALK-Szalézi Vocational School, had a thorough presentation about how to implement the flipped model in vocational education.
