In a flipped course, content that traditionally is delivered by in-class lectures is largely shifted (flipped) to out-of-class assignments. In-class time is devoted to building on fundamental knowledge to achieve higher-order cognitive engagement through classroom activities, projects, or discussions while instructors may provide short videos for students to view before the class session.
