In January 2020, I started researching a
computer science flipped-learning classroom education tool used at the
University of Toronto, under the support of
Professor Andrew Petersen.
This tool, known as
uses short coding exercises, multiple choice questions
and video-based instruction to support a flipped-classroom programming
course. Our research applies sequential pattern mining to behaviours
identified in students log-data in order to understand common
user behavioural patterns of PCRS. In order to fund this research,
my advisor and I sucessfully applied for a
University of Toronto Mississauga
Undergraduate Research Grant.
We were able to identify interesting and common use cases of this flipped-classoom tool. We published these findings in a poster titled "Exploring How Students Use an Online Learning Environment" at the 2021 SIGCSE Technical Symposium. At SIGCSE, I was awarded the Council for Undergraduate Research (CUR) Award. This award is given to one undergraduate poster presenter each year at SIGCSE for an outstanding presentation and research significance.
