Teaching Biostatistics course with flipped classroom


Mingan Yang (U.S.A)


In recent years, flipped classroom, which delivers the course documents outside class and makes use of class time to apply the knowledge they newly learned, is popular due to abundant resources, advanced equipments, improved efficiency, and greater student collaboration and participation in the classroom. Although there are a few studies on flipped classroom, they are mainly for studies on undergraduate students from majors of natural science. There are very few studies on flipped classroom on graduate level biostatistics course with medium and small class size. In the study, the author performs an evaluation of students' performance and achievements in a graduate biostatistics course with a flipped classroom. The results indicate that the flipped classroom is promising learning tools in our study population.
