Abstract

The “flipped classroom” has begun to revolutionize the way that students receive information from their teachers and is ushering in a new era of active and creative thinkers. Although flipping the classroom has gained a great deal of popular attention in magazines and blog posts by education researchers, very little research has focused on the effectiveness or feasibility of flipping the classroom at the collegiate level. This paper documents the implementation of a “partially-flipped” class over one semester of a large enrollment microeconomics course, as well as presents results of students’ perception towards flipped learning.

Keywords: Flipped Learning, Active Learning, Problem-based Learning
