The flipped classroom is an instructional strategy in which the learner independently studies the notions of the course before attending the class. The teacher or trainer guides the students afterward through activities that would normally take place outside the classroom (research, homework, practice, discussions, etc.) offering a more in-depth approach to the subjects covered. This teaching method can be used to develop training for the academic as well as the entrepreneurial environment. It can take the form of a blended learning approach, where online learning is mixed with in-class participation.
