I am an instructional designer. My job involves helping instructors improve their courses. I conduct course evaluation, student satisfaction survey, provide recommendations to learning activities, class management, and tests. I also design multimedia for a variety of lessons.
Flipped Learning is my favorite method of learning. In Flipped Learning, teachers can have students acquire content knowledge at home and save more time for practice activities in class. Students enjoy more learning autonomy in their learning and they also acquire better transfer of knowledge.
