What is Flipped Classroom?

Flipped Classroom 

From "An Examination of the Flipped Classroom Approach On College Student Academic Involvement":

The flipped classroom approach involves engaging students in knowledge acquisition of course material prior to a class session, typically through assigned readings or lecture videos, leaving class time for the integration of knowledge through application, analysis or synthesis-based activities (Bergmann & Sams, 2012; Brame, n.d.). In essence, students are introduced to course concepts prior to class sessions, allowing in-class time to offer students opportunities to work with the concepts while utilizing the support of peers and the instructor. As such, in-class learning is shifted from traditional lecture delivery to class activities such as concept checks, discussions, debates and activities involving application, analysis, problem-solving, experiments and/or evaluation.
