Abstract

A lack of engagement by students has been found to be a factor in the high attrition rates in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) courses. This paper explores whether using a flipped-classroom approach and continuous assessment can increase student engagement in first year in their learning of ICT professional skills and ethics - a topic that previous research has identified as a low interest topic. A case study research methodology is used to demonstrate that increasing student engagement could impact positively on both attrition and academic performance.
