Abstract

Lecture remains the most popular teaching method in many disciplines, such as mathematics. For many instructors and students, lecture is a comfortable way of teaching and learning. Pedogogical and technical advances, however, lead many to question whether lecture is the most effective way to educate students. At the same time, some instructors have begun investigating ways to use online learning technologies-such as screencasting or lecture capturing-to leverage the strengths of lecture. In this chapter, we describe the experience of one instructor ?flipping? her mathematics classroom by having students watch recorded lectures online prior to each class period. The benefits and challenges of learning in a flipped classroom environment are discussed, using data from a student survey, instructor reflections, and exam scores. In addition, the benefits of integrating online learning technologies into STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) coursework are included.
