1 Physics Education Research The University of Edinburgh The inverted classroom in a large enrolment introductory physics course: a case study Ross Galloway School of Physics & Astronomy University of Edinburgh

2 Physics Education Research The University of Edinburgh Acknowledgements The Physics 1A Course Team: Simon Bates, Richard Massey, Will Hossack & John Loveday Workshop heads of class and Teaching Assistants Secretaries and Technicians

3 Physics Education Research The University of Edinburgh Outline Motivation What we did What happened What the students thought Some personal reflections

4 Physics Education Research The University of Edinburgh Motivation: the Traditional Classroom

5 Physics Education Research The University of Edinburgh Motivation: the Inverted Classroom Move information transfer out of the classroom. Devote in-class learning time to higher level activities.

6 Physics Education Research The University of Edinburgh Motivation: the Inverted Classroom

23 Physics Education Research The University of Edinburgh The teacher…is there as a member of the community to select the influences which shall affect the student and to assist him in properly responding to these. Thus the teacher becomes a partner in the learning process, guiding students to independently discover meaning within the subject area. John Dewey My Pedagogic Creed, 1897
