Development and Implementation of a Flipped Course in a Philippine Higher Education Institution

Publisher: Bicol University

Blended learning approaches, such as flipped learning, have gained traction in recent years due to the continuous advancement of technologies. Early evidence on the use of blended learning approaches shows that they support students’ ownership of learning and optimize students learning performance. In the Philippines, the incorporation of blended learning approaches in the teaching of higher education courses is seen as vital in preparing Filipino students for the world of work. This was further heightened during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic as schools and universities were forced to employ flexible learning modalities to support learning continuity. This study aimed at developing and pilot testing a mathematics course designed around the flipped learning approach. Moreover, this study examined the effect of flipped learning on student performance, and the perceptions of students about their learning experience. A flipped mathematics course was designed and implemented for an entire semester. Results from the validation showed that the flipped course design met the standards for instructional objectives, methodology and design, technical consideration, and rationale of media choice. Furthermore, results from the pilot testing, tests, survey, and focus group discussions revealed that the flipped course had a positive effect on student performance, and students were largely positive about their flipped learning experience; they also favored flipped learning over other flexible learning modalities. This study has supported prior evidence of the potential of flipped learning in improving student performance. Moreover, the study provided contextual evidence of the potential of flipped learning to provide a sustainable approach to supporting learning continuity in times of educational disruptions.
