On the Cover

Students at the University of Amsterdam used a clicker system as part of a flipped class taught by Dr. Van Vliet. Students watched videos and prepared conceptual questions before class. They submitted these questions via a discussion forum, and used these questions for peer instruction during class. Students in this small study (see the article “Flipped-Class Pedagogy Enhances Student Metacognition and Collaborative-Learning Strategies in Higher Education But Effect Does Not Persist”) shifted in their motivations and learning strategies, but the effects were not persistent.
