Evolution of a Flipped Engineering Economy CourseThis paper would fit into the Engineering Economy Division tracks at ASEE 2015At the ISERC 2013 conference in Puerto Rico the paper entitled “Flipped Out EngineeringEconomy: Converting a Traditional Class to Hybrid Model” was presented. That paper andpresentation focused on the history of the CE 390: Engineering Economy course at theinstitution, its conversion to a flipped model, and early student results (1 semester) of convertinga traditional lecture class to a hybrid model. The present paper describes the evolution of thehybrid model that has been implemented in this course over the last five semesters, discussingthe lessons learned and advantages and disadvantages of our approaches over this evolution.Included will be a description of changes made to the structure and pedagogy used as well as theimpact over time on student learning and assessment of the course. Statistical analysis of studentresults will be included. Faculty interested in flipping courses or incorporating hybrid techniquesin their courses should be interested in this work.
