Flipped Classroom

Moving content delivery outside of the classroom and using in-class time for students to engage actively with the material is the essence of the flipped classroom. One benefit of this model of teaching is that it provides students with structured time to struggle through the application of the material, often the most difficult part of learning for students, with help from instructors as well as their peers. Empirical evidence suggests that, if done well, this method of teaching can improve learning for students of all ability and preparation levels. However, what you ask your students to do, both in and out of the class, in order to flip the classroom will depend on the goals of the class, the size of the class, and various other class dynamics.
