Student First – Flipped Classroom
ESADE’s new teaching methodology, Student First, draws on the latest educational trends and is based on a basic concept: the participatory role of students. With the Student First methodology, you and your classmates will participate in knowledge creation and contribute through your work to a collective learning process.
One major way in which ESADE’s approach differs from traditional methods is that students must come to class having prepared the topic of discussion ahead of time. This “flipped classroom” approach divides learning into three phases:
Pre-class preparationread, research or view multimedia content on the basics of the topic to be discussed.
In-class workshare the knowledge you’ve acquired with your classmates and the instructor by debating, reflecting, and solving cases, challenges and projects.
After classdeepen your understanding, reflect further and apply the acquired concepts in other areas.
Advantages of the Student First system
You internalise knowledge in a more natural way.
When you get to class, you’ve already identified your doubts, so you can share them and solve them.
Classes are more enriching: you focus on applying knowledge and you receive input not only from the instructor but from all your classmates.
It prepares you for the future: you learn to apply theory in different circumstances and to work collaboratively.
You become more open to learning new things.
You’ll work on 30 competencies organised into four key blocks:
