How We Teach

YYC Net Lab generally uses a Flipped Classroom approach in all of its courses. In short this means that the instructors are available to answer questions and provide direction, but not to lecture.

Is this right for me?

The onus is put on the student to be proactive in their learning. Here's a series of ordered steps to help accomplish that goal:

  1. Read the module. Do the quizzes and labs as you encounter them. Do not do the end-of-module exam (yet). Build a list of questions as you go through this first pass. This list of questions should cover material from the mid-chapter quizzes, labs, etc.
  2. Attend the tutorial or ask questions in the Slack channel. Ask pointed questions so that your questions are answered. Ensure you have gained understanding before moving on.
  3. At this point you've read the module. You've attended the tutorial. Go back through the module and re-do all the quizzes. If you are scoring anything other than perfect on them, go read the specific areas where you are stumbling. Don't bother re-reading the entire module. If this generates more questions; go ask those questions in the Slack channel.
  4. At this point you have a good handle on the quizzes. Do the end-of-module exam.
