Development of Analytical Thinking Using Flipped Classroom Approach for Big Data Analytics Courses


This research clarified the development of analytical thinking skills through 10 hands-on lab sessions conducted among undergraduates at Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP). This systematic review study examined 30 publications from 2017 to 2022 that were discovered through a comprehensive systematic mapping process for a more in-depth analysis. Previous studies indicate that most instructors and students believe the flipped classroom approach improved analytical thinking among undergraduates. Therefore, in order to determine the effectiveness of the flipped classroom approach for the development of analytical thinking, 134 UTP undergraduates enrolled in Big Data Analytics (BDA) course are considered as the participants in this study. One complete module with detailed teaching and learning activities (TLA) was developed for an immersive learning experience, and students were provided with pre-class instruction. The performance of the flipped classroom approach was evaluated using immersive learning experiences and a student satisfaction survey. The results show that the flipped classroom approach is successful in developing students’ analytical thinking skills among the participants of this study. The research has been reviewed and approved by the university through the Scholarship of the Teaching of Learning (SoTL).
