Abstract Title: Effectiveness of flipped classroom techniques in an advanced laboratory physics course
Abstract: We study the effectiveness of flipped classroom techniques facilitated by the Open edX platform for the direct instructional aspects of an advanced laboratory physics course by comparing metrics from semesters before and after curricular changes. The metrics used are the ECLASS survey and internal end-of-semester course evaluations (including self-reported hours per week, student reflections on personal experiences and learning experiences, and overall student satisfaction). We find that the reformed curriculum has positive effects on several metrics of particular interest to the course's strategic goals.
