Project: Processing Knowledge Clips in Flipped Classrooms
Period: 2019-2023 (PhD project; BOF)
This research project focuses on mapping differences in how students process the online videos (knowledge clips) in a 'flipped classroom' and whether different strategies can be distinguished therein. We then investigate whether certain strategies (a) lead to other activities in the classroom and (b) lead to better processing of the study material and better study results. Three research questions are central:
- RQ1: can we - based on the viewing behavior of students as they study knowledge clips - distinguish patterns that are indicative of the learning strategies that students use to process the information in the knowledge clips?
- RQ2: In what way do differences in learning strategies that students use when studying knowledge clips in a 'flipped classroom' also explain differences in the behavior of those students during class activities?
- RQ3: In which way do differences in learning strategies that students use when studying knowledge clips in a 'flipped classroom' also explain differences in students' study results?
Research question 1 will be investigated in a lab study in which 90 students from the faculty of social sciences will participate. Research questions 2 and 3 will be examined in a field study that will take place in the context of a statistics course at the faculty of social sciences. Both for the lab study and for the field study, 'trace data' and qualitative data will be combined.
