Student attitudes toward flipping the general chemistry classroom†
The idea of “flipping the classroom” to make class time more engaging and student-centred has gained ground in recent years. The lecture portion of General Chemistry I and General Chemistry II courses were pushed outside the classroom using pre-recording technology and streaming delivery of content, in order to make in-class time more interactive. This paper reports the results of surveys of student attitudes toward aspects of flipping the classroom, such as having lecture delivered outside the classroom, leaving more in-class time for questions and problem solving. Based on the survey results, the flipped classroom model will continue to be used for the foreseeable future.
