Hwang, Gwo-Haur; Chen, Beyin; Sung, Chia-Wen – Interactive Learning Environments, 2019
Amateur musical instrument learners are usually taught in a one-to-many learning mode owing to the cost consideration; therefore, it is difficult for the teacher to address individual students' problems. This results in a lack of knowledge internalization. The flipped classroom enables the teacher to have more in-class time to interact with…
