Yildirim, Gürkan
Acta Didactica Napocensia, v10 n2 p31-44 2017
The aim of this study is to present opinions of undergraduate students towards Flipped Classroom (FC) practices and to determine their different aspects then traditional learning approaches. The case study approach is preferred to conduct the study. In this context, 34 volunteered students were included in the study group by purposive sampling method. The quasi-structured interview form developed by the researcher is used to collect the data. Furthermore, content analysis was used to analyze the data. According to the data obtained from the participants, FC practices are seen to be appreciated and they have many outstanding aspects compared to traditional learning approaches. In particular, FC practices have different effects in different stages of the courses. In this regard, FC improves readiness level of the students prior to the class, supports active participation during face-to-face courses, increases the retention of knowledge and shortens the learning process. However, there are also some limitations such as need for additional hardware, reduced influence of the instructor and troubles that may be caused by possible technical problems. Using these practices in learning environments and widespread adoption of FC practices are expected to contribute positively to the learning activities.
