Over the last few weeks I have been working with colleagues in the Faculty of Business Government and Law to plan, design, trial, and evaluate a flipped classroom design for a unit on Investments. The team approach allows the course team to experience this process and learn from it even though the trial is only taking place in one unit.
Below is an infographic created using Piktochart (which doesn't allow me to download the SVG sadly). The graphic is meant to speak for itself - but just to clarify it captures the week 4 experience only. Subsequent workshop designs are based on the pedagogical and teaching/learning goals of the respective weekly topics as well as what worked and didn't work from the previous workshop as applicable. Being a team effort many people including the unit and course conveners, other colleagues in BGL as well as our Arts and Design colleague Felicia Zhang, and myself contributed to the design, running and evaluation this infographic represents. It is also worth noting that the current week (week 5) design is somewhat modified in response to the recommendations from week 4 and will be the topic of the next post. Overall the workshop model was well received by students in evaluations and even though there are some issues to overcome it was reportedly favoured as a replacement model for the lecture/tutorial model.
