Abstract—Flipped instruction or a flipped classroom is a form of blended learning in which students learn new content online by watching video lectures, usually at home, and what used to be homework (assigned problems) is now done in class with teachers offering more personalized guidance and interaction with students, instead of lecturing. This is also known as backwards classroom, flipped classroom, reverse teaching, and the Thayer Method. In our study, thirty percent of the course content was flipped. Results on two of the courses used as pilot will be presented and discussed.
Index Terms—Flipped classroom, reverse teaching and backwards classroom.
