Abstract

Technological advances have created immense pressure on our younger generation to keep themselves abreast with the newer developments in medical sciences. Educators have to evolve innovative pedagogy to help prepare this generation for future challenges as the training periods are getting relatively shorter. Flipped classroom or Inverted classroom is one such innovation that can empower a learner to develop critical thinking skills and master ways to imbibe vast information by engaging students in active learning process. Reading and understanding are carried at home, and the class-time is utilized for higher levels of learning like analyzing, evaluating, and application of the basic information. This review article is aimed to guide the educators in applying the concept of flipped classroom in their teaching learning armamentarium.
