This chapter contains case studies from Engineering. Case study authors discuss Vygotsky’s influence on their choice to use audio, visual, and print materials to scaffold instruction. Concepts from ADDIE and the Successive Approximation Model are also used to guide the development of content and selection of materials. The case studies emphasize the structuring of learning experiences based on individual competencies. Each case study opens with the instructional context and a rationale for flipping the classroom. The case study authors also describe the structure of the course, as well as descriptions about how they prepared their students for flipping, and an evaluation of the flipping experience from both the instructor and student perspectives.
