D. Sinouvassane and A. Nalini
Abstract—Aim: The purpose of this study was to compare the perception of the flipping classroom model between the first year and third year health science degree students. Design: A total number of 51 students (n=24 from year one and n=27 from year three) from degree physiotherapy programme. Year one and year three students were enrolled for pathology and cardio respiratory courses respectively. The flipped classroom model was introduced for the first time to students during the same teaching semester by the same instructor. Students were requested to read posted online materials of their respective courses which included a brief introduction of the topic, video podcasts and frequently asked questions related to the topic. Students were instructed to respond the questions posted, prior to the scheduled face-to- face class. The instructor discussed during the contact session. The participants feedback and their perception about this method were obtained by using a questionnaire. Result: Perception about the flipped class was different among the first and final year students.
