Our model of lecture flipping

SatisfactionI really really loved the interactive lectures, they made me more engaged and I believe I learnt more in this style of teaching. The Screencasts are essential to go through before the lectures, but this is a good thing. I found the prerecorded screen casts/quiz style lectures actually very helpful, they made you actually think about the lecture material while it was being taught instead of leaving it all to revision timeDid not enjoy his method of teaching, having to watch screencasts in our own time and then doing questions in the lecture was not helpful to me.too much reliance on understanding materialwould have preferred less of the pre-lecture screencasts and and more of this material being taught in the lectures rather than the 'big scale tutorial' type set up.


Freedom from flipping

Acquiring the courage to cut

education gives to us that which remains after we have forgotten all that we have learned in the schools E.D. Battle, 1899Education
