- Room 101, 1/F., Runme Shaw Bldg., HKU
- Dr. Lui King Shan, Associate Professor, Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, The University of Hong Kong
- flipped classroom, programming, web 2.0
Chair: Mr. Takuro Hashimoto, Assistant Lecturer, Department of Japanese Studies, The University of Hong Kong
This project aims at developing a flipped advanced programming course offered to the students who have taken an introductory Java programming course. In learning programming, it is crucial to have a lot of practices to realize the theories learned in lectures. In an advanced course, as students have background, they can pick up new knowledge quickly. In this project, we want to develop appropriate course structure and materials such that students can be benefited from the extensive hands-on programming exercises with the guidance of the instructors after learning new programming techniques through video lectures. This course allows us to understand the costs and benefits of flipping a class. By introducing different forms of performance evaluations in the course, we could understand how students who took different introductory programming courses perform. We can then study evidence-based curriculum impact to further enhance our introductory programming courses.
