The Flipped Classroom Model of Learning: An Investigation of Students' Perspectives and Achievement
One teaching style gaining popularity is the flipped classroom model of instruction. In this model, what generally occurs during class time, such as lectures and demonstrations, occurs at home and assignments typically completed out of class occur during class. Currently, there is a dearth of research about the effectiveness of this instructional model. Therefore, to contribute to this line of research on the flipped classroom model of instruction, this study investigated students’ perspectives of the flipped classroom model and examined the impact of the model on student achievement. While we found no significant differences between the flipped model and the traditional model in terms of academic achievement, we found different factors that may influence the effectiveness of this teaching model.
