Feature Articles

A flipped classroom is a pedagogical model that involves having students view online lectures, read current evidence-based articles, and complete text readings prior to class. Students then come to class ready to actively engage in collaborative learning through case scenarios, small group discussion, or other meaningful, interactive activities. The flipped classroom model described here was an overwhelming success for both students and faculty.
