Abstract

Numerous instructors have moved part of the instruction outside class meetings in order to provide more classtime for collaborative or supervised problem-solving and skill-building, often reporting dramatic improvement in the areas of retention, engagement, and achievement. The additional challenge faced by ERAU-Worldwide is the video-conferencing platform that connects groups of students in diverse locations to an instructor in one of the classrooms or teaching from home. This study focuses on the issues inherent in the distance between students and instructor while attempting to replicate other published experiences. Exam scores in flipped, non-flipped, and online courses without the videos are compared.

Flipping a Distance Learning Calculus Class

Numerous instructors have moved part of the instruction outside class meetings in order to provide more classtime for collaborative or supervised problem-solving and skill-building, often reporting dramatic improvement in the areas of retention, engagement, and achievement. The additional challenge faced by ERAU-Worldwide is the video-conferencing platform that connects groups of students in diverse locations to an instructor in one of the classrooms or teaching from home. This study focuses on the issues inherent in the distance between students and instructor while attempting to replicate other published experiences. Exam scores in flipped, non-flipped, and online courses without the videos are compared.
