In MTR we approach all classes with a Flipped Classroom and students have access to all the information they need online and can prepare before classes. In the basic structure of a “flipped classroom,” the students first engage the content online (through readings, video lectures, or podcasts), then come to class for the guided practice. Real-world situations. The teacher then guides them in class and follows their progress in class. Is present and available for the students.
