Description

This paper explores the use of the flipped classroom pedagogy in a laboratory course for third year electrical engineering students. The performance of a laboratory experiment to build and test a simple DC motor is discussed. It is well known from the flipped classroom setting that video clips of appropriate theory can enhance the learning, but using video clips to enhance the laboratory component of electrical and computer engineering course is much less reported. This paper describes how replicating one or two common YouTube videos can be used to enhance a student’s knowledge of energy conversion principles necessary for the operation of a DC motor. Provided with a variety of components in the laboratory, the students must duplicate the construction and operation of a device they had observed on the YouTube video and demonstrate it to the lab instructor. This paper provides insight to the classroom experience, and includes an outline of the preparation, the experiment, the typical outcomes, and lessons learned.
