Does "Flipping" Promote Engagement?: A Comparison of a Traditional, Online, and Flipped Class
Burke, Alison S.; Fedorek, Brian
Active Learning in Higher Education, v18 n1 p11-24 Mar 2017
"Flipped" or inverted classrooms are designed to utilize class time for application and knowledge building, while course content is delivered through the use of online lectures and watched at home on the students' time. It is believed that flipped classrooms promote student engagement and a deeper understanding of the class material. The purpose of this study is to compare self-reported student engagement in three separate course modalities: traditional face-to-face lecture class, flipped class, and an online class. It is hypothesized that the flipped class will report higher levels of student engagement because of the nature of the active learning environment.
