Teaching activities in flipped classroom study design
Keywords:university teaching, flipped classroom, study design, individual learning
In recent years, the flipped classroom (FC) methodology – contact learning preceded by individual learning and the creation of prior knowledge in the learner – has become increasingly common in university teaching. However, the design of the FC has been applied differently in teaching. The aim of our research was to map the teaching activities used in various FC designs and to compare the use of the methods for study groups of different sizes. In order to map the teaching activities of the FC design, we compared 10 different study designs as well as the teaching activities used in study groups with different numbers of students. The study groups were divided into large groups including more than 30 students and small study groups with less than 30 students. As a result of the comparison of the different study designs, we mapped teaching activities conducting teaching by FC methodology. The different teaching activities of the FC suited equally well to the dissimilar study groups.
