Teaching Development Grant (2018-2019). Productive Failure Meets the Flipped Classroom: An Innovative Pedagogy to Improve Student Learning

University lecturers typically use the direct instruction (DI) approach. Despite the strengths of DI, there is a need for constructivist pedagogy that can enhance content mastery while at the same time optimizing skills for self-regulation, collaboration, and optimal learning. The aim of this project is to apply productive-failure based flipped classroom (PF-FC) instructional design in both teacher education- and non-teacher education courses. PF-FC instructional design synergizes the strengths of productive failure (PF)-a learning design that engages students in generating solutions to novel problems first before teaching them the concept—and the flipped classroom design—which emphasizes the seamless integration of online and face-to-face sessions. The PF-FC instructional design is hypothesized to lead to improved student learning, higher levels of motivation and positive emotions, and improved self-regulation and collaboration skills. The proposed project is closely aligned with the thematic areas of the Teaching and Development Grants on innovative curriculum design, enhancement of learning outcomes, and e-learning. Upon completion of the project, it will have created a new curriculum design, engaged in teacher capacity building, and improved student learning.
