Millennials in flipped classrooms
MetadataShow full item record
The flipped classroom structure is a new concept designed to accommodate current students in place of the traditional classroom structure. Instead of in-class lectures, students do the majority of learning outside of class and use in-class time to participate in interactive activities with peers and with educators. Most out-of-class learning materials involve use of lecture videos, online games, or lecture notes. Recent studies found success with flipped classrooms in a variety of settings and students. However, there are no studies regarding whether current students better retain information when providing lectures in digital media as opposed to traditional media. This study compares the mean difference of pretest and post classroom scores for pharmacology using NBME exams of PA students given study materials in digital form and those given study materials in traditional paper form. We hope the study can contribute to effective teaching for future students.
