Flipping classroom is being trialled in many disciplines as a means of improving student engagement and learning. While definitions vary it is commonly understood that ‘Inverting the classroom means that events that have traditionally taken place inside the classroom now take place outside the classroom and vice versa’ (M.J. Lage and G. Platt. The internet and the inverted classroom. The Journal of Economic Education, 31(1):11, 2000.p.32).
The following resources and links provide examples of flipped classrooms in a range of disciplines, both in Australia and internationally.

- ‘We decided to create a collection of specially-filmed short videos to replace lectures on a module teaching mathematics to engineers. Students would watch the videos online in their own time and each would be followed by a short quiz. By changing the character of weekly problem classes to include more demonstration and peer discussion we could double their frequency without a big increase in staff time.’
