This chapter describes a course teaching unit, carried out in a teacher education college in central Israel, that aims to develop techno-pedagogical skills in different disciplines, fostering independent and collaborative learning. The unit constituted modelling for the flipped classroom strategy using constructivist teaching. The unit was applied with 35 student-teachers from different disciplines online due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

The teaching method of the unit is described through the humanist theoretical lens, while highlighting the teaching and learning processes, the content knowledge, the techno-pedagogical environments and the learners' reflective insights. This process consolidates pedagogic models of teaching and learning methods according to a humanist, constructivist approach in an online learning environment.
