This is the abstract of Revisiting the flipped classroom in a design context by Coyne, Lee & Petrova.
After explaining our experience with a flipped classroom model of learning, we argue that the approach brings to light the dramaturgical and mediatized aspects of learning experiences that favour a closer connection between recorded content and “live” presentation by the lecturer. We adopted the flipped classroom approach to learning and teaching in a class of over 100 postgraduate level university students, some learning at a distance, and run over two successive years. This article describes the format of the lecture recordings, class activities and assessment method. We also describe the outcome of course evaluation, and present what we learned from the process.
I looked up the meaning of dramaturgical and mediatization and yet I'm still struggling with what is meant starting from dramaturgical to the end of the sentence. Your explanation would be much appreciated.
Merriam Webster lists these definitions for mediatize:
1- to bring (a prince or state) down to the rank of mediate vassal from that of immediate vassal of the Holy Roman Empire : annex (a state) to another a mediatized prince — Cyril Connolly
2- to put into a middle or intermediate position : make instrumental or subordinate
1- to act as mediator
2- to become a mediate vassal of the Holy Roman Empire
none of these definitions could help me figure out what for God's sake these mediatized aspects could be. To me, dramaturgical is less troublesome as it seems to mean relating to the techniques of drama but then again what does play making have to do with a flipped classroom model of learning? And yes I understand what flipped classroom is. I FEEL LOST
