The flipped classroom has been increasingly promoted as a pedagogical model in which the typical lecture and homework elements of a course are reversed. This seminar will introduce a flipped classroom project conducted at East Normal China University. In the project, students were offered micro-lessons for self-study, together with problem solving activities and evaluation from the teacher and peers in the class time. Moreover, the teaching portfolio and evaluation records of each session were analyzed for refinement of forthcoming sessions. Findings of the project will be discussed with their implications for an effective way for flipping the classroom.
