Basics and Key Principles of Flipped Learning: Classes Upside Down

Eda Ercan Demirel
Abstract—For many years up till now, language experts have been seeking better ways to teach and learn. All through the history of teaching and learning, traditional methods have come and gone. Despite traditional methods, modern methods tend to be more of a student-centred, constructivist, inquiry based one. An eye-catching model gaining popularity recently is “Flipped Learning”. In pursuit of autonomous and active students, flipped learning gets the traditional classes all upside down! The teacher and the students just swap roles inside and outside the class. Students take the real control of their own learning and have a say in the process. This paper aims to give insights into flipped classes: the roles, process, and step by step what is really happening inside and outside!

Index Terms—Flipped classes, flipped learning, language learning and teaching, learning and teaching.br />
