89-Flipping an Introductory Computer Science Course - YES YOU CAN!

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This presentation describes how the flipped approach was implemented in an introductory Computer Science undergraduate course in algorithmic thinking at a four-year college. It examines content that is appropriate for learning at the student’s individual pace outside the classroom. It focuses on suggestions for active learning exercises at (Bloom's) higher levels of learning in the classroom. This approach showed that the instructor’s different role, as a guide rather than a lecturer, allowed students to learn actively, built confidence, and especially provided one-on-one support and motivation for weaker students, who learnt from their peers as well as from the teacher. These advantages can help address problems with retention of students in the introductory programming courses in the CS major. Student reaction to this new classroom paradigm was overwhelmingly positive.
