Abstract:This thesis researches both the need for library education for the creative technology curriculum and its implementation. It tests the already existing Flipped classroom model and the newly designed Guided Read-in as methodologies for this implementation. It does so by firstly stating the need for library education within the Creative Technology curriculum. Afterwards the State-of-the-Art regarding introductory programming education and libraries in the context of the OpenFrameworks platform is reported. The second part evaluates both methodologies as they were implemented within the Programming for AI 2019 course. Both the OpenCV library and OFxGui play a major part in this research. OpenCV was used as library for the Guided Read-in and OFxGui was introduced using the Flipped Classroom approach. Both methodologies are suited for completely different purposes and both exist within the context of introductory programming education. Regarding the Flipped classroom principle, conclusions are drawn about its suitedness for academic purposes. When introducing students to the Flipped classroom approach, the teacher should keep in mind that deadlines help students to keep on track. As not all students react toward the Flipped classroom approach in the same manner, many require more regulation. When introducing Flipped classroom in the academic curricula teacher need to take a good look-out for which teaching method is the most suitable and how they want to implement this in their standing methodology.
