IMPROVING STUDENT ENGAGEMENT IN A FLIPPED CLASSROOM

M. Chapman, U. Hassein

Ryerson University (CANADA)
Some of the courses offered in engineering department suffer from poor student engagement due to the use of dated delivery styles. A proposal for a enhanced flipped classroom approach is offered to improve attendance and student retention of subject matter that is often considered to lack adequate stimulus. Topic related examples and animations are used to demonstrate concepts and reinforce the subject matter and associated application. By using examples that are based upon previous students' inquiries and weak performance areas, the example-based approach offers an opportunity to enhance the learning experience. The nature of instructing topics in the area of computer graphics and design make sit particularly critical to highlight concepts and processing approaches that reinforce the underlying principles and methodologies. Some examples of animations and processes are given to illustrate the utility and practicality of delivering subject matter in a query-based mode. The result is a warehouse of problem-related examples and animations which evolves during and after course delivery. Initial student feedback has been very positive and ongoing improvements are realized by incorporating suggestions and improvements in areas perceived to require enhancements.
