Abstract

Engagement with learning activities is very important for adult students, especially in the online learning environment. This research is an exploration of the learning experiences of medical assistant students in a 5E flipped learning environment of the Pre-Hospital Trauma Care course at a private university in Malaysia. In this study, students were required to participate in a 5E-flipped learning environment involving online and face-to-face learning activities. A case study research approach was adopted, involving 12 undergraduate students enrolled in a 7-week PHTC 5E flipped classroom course. Qualitative data were generated through participants’ learning diaries, classroom observations, online non-participant observations, the student focuses group discussions, and individual student interviews. Thematic analysis was used to code, identify patterns, and developed themes within the data. The findings showed that students can improve their online learning ability with this 5E flipped learning environment. This focused on the aspect of a) Providing a Self-Checking Approach b) Increased Students’ Preparation Time c) Providing a Self-Directed Learning Environment, and d) Improve Self-Efficacy in Learning. Thus, the 5E flipped learning environment enriches students’ learning ability in an online learning environment.
