—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. Conclusion:
This study found that the year one students are open to accept
the flipped classroom model when compared to the third year
