Five Years of Flipped Classrooms: lessons learned
Is Version Of
In recent years, flipped classrooms have gained in popularity at many universities. However, they remain uncommon in design education. This paper presents the author's experiences creating and teaching flipped classrooms for required computing and communications courses over the past five years. In each of the two case studies, the introduction of flipped classrooms produced improvements in student learning outcomes, student engagement, and more efficient uses of school resources (e.g. contact hours, classroom space, TA's, etc.) compared to nonflipped versions of the courses. The author presents the details of the course structures, assessment methodology, and outcomes for the studies. The intent of presenting these studies is to share ideas about creating effective flipped classroom experiences and to help beginning design educators determine whether flipped classrooms are appropriate for their needs.
