Master Thesis Viva in the College of Education for Pure Science entitled " The effect of the flipped learning strategy on providing fourth grade students with biological concepts and developing their scientific culture"
The College of Education for Pure Science, University of Mosul, has done the Master Thesis Viva entitled " The effect of the flipped learning strategy on providing fourth grade students with biological concepts and developing their scientific culture",
On Wednesday, August 17, 2022, the respected Dean of the College, Assistant Professor Dr. Qais Ismail Ibrahim, the Honorable Scientific Associate and Administrative Associate, the Honorable Head of the Department of Biology, and a number of the college's teachers were attended the viva.
This study, presented by the M.Sc. Student Radwan Othman Younes in the Department of Biology, deals with the inverse learning to make the fourth acquire the biological concepts and to develop their scientific culture.
To accomplish the objective of the study, the researcher put forward six zero hypotheses and the research was confined to the fourth grade students (scientific branch) at Damascus School for Boys for the academic year (2021-2022). The researcher used the experimental design with two equivalent groups with partial precision. The experimental group was studied in accordance with the inverse learning strategy, while the control group was studied using the ordinary method. The sample comprised (52) students divided into (26) students in the experimental group and (26) students in the control group.
The equivalence between the two groups of the research was performed in terms of the variables of the time age of students measured in months, the education of the parents, the general average of the students' marks in the final exam in the third intermediate grade and the pretest of the scientific standard.
To achieve the objective and the hypotheses of the research, the researcher prepared a test to make the students acquire the biological concepts of the biology subject and he also prepared the scale of the scientific knowledge.
The researcher verified the invariability of the tools by submitting them to a group of experts who are specialized in the field of methods of teaching. the test of concept acquisition was agreed upon with a percentage of (85%) and above, while the scale of the scientific knowledge was agreed upon with a percentage of (85%), the invariability coefficient of the scientific knowledge scale was (0.861) using Alph-Chronbach equation and these two coefficients are considered good with accepted percentage values.
The experiment started in the first term of the academic year (2021-2022) and lasted for 10 weeks as the researcher himself taught the subject to the sample at the school mentioned above.
In lights of the results, the researcher drew the following conclusions:
- Using the inverse learning strategy is effective in terms of making the fourth grade students acquire the biological concepts and in developing their scientific knowledge.
- The inverse learning strategy assisted the development of the level of the scientific knowledge of the fourth grade students.
