Self Flipped Classroom: New Way to Teach Computer Science Students

DATE: 15th April 2019
TIME: 13:00-14:00
LOCATION: Sir Alwyn Williams Building, 423 Seminar Room

The cultures of social media and prosumerism enter the domain of education and power a shift towards learner-centred active learning. This motivates us to develop and evaluate a new instructional and learning approach that is built on the reuse of student-generated content. The proposed approach is called Self-Flipped Classroom, where the self part of the name stands for materials that students produce as part of their own learning; and the flip part of the name stand for reuse of these materials by instructors for teaching other students in the flipped classroom pedagogical model. This talk will introduce Self-Flipped Classroom both from theoretical and practical viewpoints, and discuss the experience of implementing this approach in two universities (Newcastle, UK and Uppsala, Sweden), highlighting the associated benefits and challenges.
