Flipping the Principles of Financial Accounting Course

Flipping the Principles of Financial Accounting Course

Principles of Financial Accounting is the first required course for business majors. Traditionally, the repeatable course rate (grade of C- or lower) has approached 50%. Using a flipped classroom, Dr. DeBerg requires students to view classroom lectures before the first class meeting each week. In the second meeting, students are broken into four groups of 30, with each sub-group broken down into groups of three. The breakout sections are led by four outstanding senior accounting majors, called mentors. During the breakout session, students do their "homework" during class time. Hence, what formerly was homework becomes classwork; what was classwork now becomes homework.

I have never before seen students who are actually enthused about learning financial accounting. Plus, once I have a good mini-lecture recorded on video, and is easily accessible by students, then this lecture is timeless! Oh, yes, and one more thing....teaching the course this way is really, really invigorating!
