Stories from the Flipped Trenches

Facilitated by Dr Kar Ming Chong, Presented by Dr Arash Zamyadi (School of Civil and Environmental Engineering) and Lila Azouz (Educational Developer at the Faculty of Engineering)

Continuing the CoP’s mission of showcasing UNSW academics’ flipped classroom experiences – challenges, trials, failures, successes, and warts and all – Dr Arash Zamyadi (School of Civil and Environmental Engineering) and Lila Azouz (Educational Developer at the Faculty of Engineering) will present their stories.

This presentation will focus on the experiences of Arash in applying the flipped classroom model to his lecture on a complex topic (i.e., algal harmful metabolites separation from water) in a third-year, undergraduate course. Prior to the lecture, students completed an interactive online module. Arash, together with Lila Azouz, will talk about how they developed this online module and its content, and how they evaluated students’ engagement with the module. In his lecture, Arash used a polling activity tool to assess students’ retention of the online material and spent more time actively discussing the topic.
