The Flipped Classroom of Operations Management: A Not-for-Cost-Reduction Platform
Asef-Vaziri, A.
Decision Sciences Journal of Innovative Education, v13 n1 p71-89 Jan 2015
By delivering lectures online using screen capture technology, students can learn course material at the time and location of their choice, when they are in control to pause, rewind, and fast forward the professor. Class time is no longer spent teaching basic concepts, but rather focused on more value-added activities such as problem solving, systems thinking and active learning, as well as potential collaborative exercises such as case studies, web-based simulation games, and real-world applications. A flipped classroom is an online course because its online components must compete with the best of the online courses. It is also a traditional course since not even a single class session is cancelled while all the lectures are delivered online. This core concept is reinforced by a network of resources and learning processes to ensure a smooth, lean, and synchronized course delivery system. Our pilot statistical analysis indicates that a flipped classroom, when implemented in a quantitative and analytical course, can outperform its alternatives.
