Investigating Student Resistance and Student Perceptions of Course Quality and Instructor Performance in a Flipped Information Systems Classroom
Baker, Elizabeth White; Hill, Stephen
Information Systems Education Journal, v15 n6 p17-26 Nov 2017
The study focuses on the instructor as a stakeholder in implementing the flipped classroom learning approach and ways to lessen professor resistance to flipped classroom adoption. The barrier to professor adoption that concerns potentially lower student evaluations as a result of incorporating the new approach is of particular interest. The investigation shows how inverted classrooms (ICs), incorporating both traditional and e-learning pedagogical elements, impact student perceptions of course quality and instructor teaching effectiveness. Students in an Introduction to Information Systems course were given surveys after a traditional course presentation, once the instructor changed to an IC, and after the instructor had taught the course in an IC environment several times. The results show that there are positive impacts to student perceptions of both course quality and instructor teaching effectiveness when students are taught in an IC. Further investigations into additional factors to encourage the adoption of this pedagogical approach are also provided.
