Abstract—The Flipped classroom has been applied widely in teaching computing courses. This paper aims to explore the impact of the moderating factors from the instructors’ perspectives. The study presents the findings obtained from semi-structured interviews with fourteen flipped classroom practitioners. This article investigated three potential moderators, age, gender, and experience. The results show that age and gender do not have strong evidence on their impact on the factors that could influence the instructor's adoption decision. However, some indicators by practitioners refer to experience as a possible moderator that might have impacted the factors that could influence computer science instructors to adopt the flipped classroom.
Index Terms—Age, computer science instructors, experience, flipped classroom, gender, moderators, UTAUT.
