Flipped Chemistry ‐‐ Encouraging Students to Become Better Learners
Donna McGregor, Assistant Professor; & Pamela Mills, Professor, Chemistry, Lehman
For the past three semester, we have implemented a flipped classroom model of instruction in General Chemistry 1 and 2 at Hunter and Lehman Colleges in small, large, and huge classrooms for over 2500 students. Passing rates (84-88%) were high, withdrawal rates were low (5-8%) and student satisfaction was strong. Routinely 90% of the students complete their weekly online homework assignments on time and come to class fully prepared to problem solve based on video content.
