Author'(s) Department(s)

Marketing & Entrepreneurship

Abstract

This session reports how a “flipping the classroom” grant engaged undergraduate students using their preferred modes of communication and also provided them with opportunities for more “hands-on” activities leading to more effective learning. The course, a new elective created to combine three different experiential electives for efficiency, involved considerable rather varied material; the grant allowed the class to use class time for learning activities that normally have to take place outside of class. This included various forms of interactive learning, both individual and in teams, as well as meeting with the instructor as needed. Students then performed learning activities that normally take place during class time on their own time and schedule (including lectures recorded in Camtasia and posted on KSUTube for viewing). Students reported this was very effective because they could review lecture segments as needed. An excellent outcome was a student team winning an international competition.
