CANALES-RONDA, Pedro  and  HERNANDEZ-FERNANDEZ, Asunción. Flipped Classroom Methodology in University Teaching. Rev. iberoam. educ. super [online]. 2019, vol.10, n.28, pp.116-130. ISSN 2007-2872.

In spite of the changes in the habits and behaviour of 21st century students in terms of interactivity and flexibility, the traditional masterclass methodology still prevails in the university environment; this means that it is necessary to deepen both the application of new methodologies and the students’ assessment of their usefulness. In this context, the main objective of this work consists of analyzing the application of the flipped classroom methodology. In order to achieve the planned objective, we have worked with different groups of students by means of two experiences, role playing and competition. The results obtained from an ad-hoc questionnaire have allowed us to observe direct positive effects that have affected the improvement in the perception of learning and student satisfaction of the subjects where it was implemented; besides, this methodology has reinforced teamwork within a relaxed and motivating climate, increasing dynamism and interaction in the classroom.
