Event Title

T1-D: Adaptive Lessons for Pre-Class Preparation for Flipped Classroom

Location

Richard Petty

Start Date

5-3-2018 10:00 AM

Description

In a prior three-year study that compared blended and flipped modalities for a typical STEM course in numerical methods, small effect sizes were observed in learning and affective domains. While mentioning the high demands of the flipped classroom, students also pointed out its benefits of enhanced learning and engagement. To enhance the benefits and reduce the workload associated with a flipped classroom in this study, we designed the pre-class preparation to occur through adaptive lessons. A commercial adaptive platform that combined video lectures, text, and assessment via multiple-choice and algorithmic questions was used. Preliminary results of the effects of these adaptive lessons on cognitive gains, measured via a final examination and a concept inventory, will be available at conference time.
