A current trend in teaching is to provide students with lectures and readings online, and have students come to class to work on collaborative assignments and hands-on activities. The approach is to ‘flip’ lecture and homework.
Dr. Jeremy F. Strayer from Ohio State University established a the framework for flipped classroom. He stated that "Extensive use of educational technology to deliver course content outside of class is central to the classroom flip idea. Active learning during class time is the other necessary feature of the classroom flip. These two foci influence student learning environments in fundamental ways."
