Abstract


This paper presents the results of implementing the Flipped Learning Agile (FLA) methodology as a general framework to manage courses and to encourage proactive learning for students in higher education levels. Flipped Learning is used in combination with Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) to encourage the student in the self-learning process. It is proposed the integration of an Agile Methodology that includes the use of Scrum and Kanban methodologies, by means of sprints for task scheduling and using a board for activities status, into a Flipped Learning (FL) environment. The proposed FL environment is composed of applications such as YouTube, Google Classroom, and Google Drive. The Scrum methodology was designed for 4 sprints, each one for a week-long. Before applying the FLA methodology, a Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ) was applied in a group of Electrical Circuits students at the University of Guadalajara. To examine the self-regulated learning process, the performance of the students was analysed before applying the FLA methodology; the same MSLQ was carried out after implementing the FLA methodology. The analyses of the last MSLQ show that the implementation of the FLA methodology, by means of the integration of the Agile methodologies of Scrum and Kanban into a flipped learning environment, encourage the self-learning strategy for higher education level students.
