Flipped Classroom

  • building a sense of community and belonging by blending on and off campus student learning experiences;
  • the previous year’s topic and tute recordings also made available for review.
  • Adobe Connect tutorials have replaced residential components where appropriate.

Graduate Certificate: Higher Ed

Rational for using Virtual Classroom

  • Many students were not attending tutorials
  • Those who did attend were mainly international students (for many this was their first semester at UQ)
  • The VC offered flexibility in terms of location only as the classes were synchronous
  • Off campus tutorials could be attractive to “digitally connected” student as well as those who have transportation issues

Graduate Certificate: Higher Ed


  • Domestic students may have been dissatisfied with the learning environment where they had become the unintended under represented group
  • I was also aware that the level of interactions between the tutor and students and between students was low
  • The VC environment could encourage interactions in different ways

Graduate Certificate: Higher Ed

VC used for tutorials and workshops

  • VC was not introduced until  Week 7 and the number of students who participated was low
  • I then announced I would run workshops in the VC and that picked up a few more students.

Graduate Certificate: Higher Ed

What did I find?

  • Writing on the white board: a skill to be mastered
  • managing the share space also requires some practice
  • Interestingly students preferred to interact with me in text in the chat pod and over time it was great to see students interacting with each other
  • most were reluctant to use the video camera

Graduate Certificate: Higher Ed

How successful was the intervention and would I use Adobe Connect again?

  • Participation was low
  • Students (who were attending face to face classes) said they were expecting on-line classes
  • It appears that students take some time to make a change
  • The students who did attend the VC said they were happy with the experience

Graduate Certificate: Higher Ed

Would I do it again?

  • Definitely!
  • In the short term I think the VC would be especially useful for workshops and student consultations
  • In the longer term I see students choosing a mix of on campus and on-line courses.
  • I have attached the write up (including evaluation) of my intervention.
  • I am happy to talk to others about my experience and also give you more feedback if you need it.
