Winter, J. W. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Flipped learning is a pedagogical approach that uses technology to deliver instructional content outside of class (individual space) and class time to engage in collaborative activities (group space). In a flipped learning course, the traditional classroom paradigm shifts and teachers become more facilitator than lecturer. Research on flipped…
