Flipping a Postgraduate Classroom: Experience from Griffith University
In this chapter, a case study on the use of flipped classroom approach with a postgraduate engineering course at Griffith University in Australia is presented. The aim of this case study is to demonstrate an actual design and implementation of the flipped approach as well as to discuss various issues associated with it. The chapter firstly details the contextual background and motivation of the author for using the flipped classroom approach for this particular course. It then elaborates on the details of the design and implementation and discusses the main outcomes associated with the use of flipped approach. In particular, it provides examples of specific activities and pedagogical techniques employed during the classes. The chapter concludes with a reflection on the implementation and highlights key insights into the application of flipped classroom approach within the context of a postgraduate study. Challenges and opportunities are also discussed with the view to improve future implementations of the flipped classroom approach.
