Abstract Title: Beyond the Flipped Classroom: student-generated multimedia learning objects in a large introductory physics class
Abstract: Results and implementation details from a novel learning approach that extends the pedagogy of the Flipped Classroom (FC) is described in this study. Students in a large introductory physics class (N=805) were tasked with the creation of two learning objects (LOs) over the course of the term based on pre-reading material set for the whole class. An experienced TA screened the LOs for quality and relevance to the course with the best ones highlighted and incorporated into the lectures and tutorials. Implementation strategies that helped ensure a consistent submission rate over the course of the term spanning all topics are discussed. With a participation rate of over 80%, students appeared engaged and interested in the LO exercise and self-reported dramatic improvements in their understanding of the content based on a 5-point scale despite the presence of many other assigned items in the course.
