|Chart 1: Student ratings of the flipped classroom strategy by term|
It's curious to me that students had lost some of their enthusiasm for flipping the class by Fall, 2012. I had sensed this uneasiness, especially in one class which was very large and somewhat contentious. I decided over the Christmas break that I needed to address some student concerns with the flipped class or to drop the idea. I chose to address the issues, and I think I did the right thing, as the students were much more positive about the flipped class technique in Winter, 2013.
I should look next at the students' feedback about the flipped class to see if I can isolate the issues that they were having, especially in Fall, 2012.
