Blended learning in economics and finance courses at business school
The study aims at evaluating the teaching and learning effectiveness of micro-modules in macroeconomics and finance at undergraduate and postgraduate levels in CUHK Business School. Using micro-modules in the flipped classroom strategy has attracted lots of attention from educators and pedagogical specialists. It is believed that this ‘flipped’ approach can enhance students’ learning experience and also improve their motivation and engagement in class. Built upon the micro-modules developed since 2015, the study aims to investigate the impacts of flipped classroom in Business School, and at the same time identify the differences in impacts of flipped classroom for students with different background.
