Flipped Marine Science

by | 27 Dec, 2016 | 0 comments

Dr Melanie Bishop from Macquarie University adopted a new flipped approach to a Marine Biology subject, Marine Environmental Issues.

This core subject was developed with a ‘flipped classroom’ approach utilising case studies to engage learners in real world problems and enhance their interaction.

The structure included:

  • Weekly Topic
  • Checklist of tasks for each topic including a weekly blog post to be completed prior to face-to-face workshop
  • Utilisation of varied resources each week, including relevant literature, newspaper articles, radio interviews, blogs and videos
  • Presentation of resources scaffolded to encourage student interaction

View the video to learn more about how students were engaged and how Dr Bishop developed a presence in her subject site with personal touches.
