Lovvorn, Al S.; Timmerman, John E. – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2019
The flipped classroom, based on constructivist theory, focuses on acquiring strengths within a discipline rather than knowledge transmission. While the process of flipping the classroom has been extensively explored, little discussion has followed concerning how to effectively evaluate student learning in this new teaching paradigm. The authors…
