In the class they responded the quiz questions, discussed about their responses and involved in small groups about clinical scenarios. At the end of the course the students responded to a questionnaire including 20 items about the views and experience of the students in using the flipped classroom. Descriptive and analytic statistics consisting pearson correlation, independent t test and one way ANOVA were used for analyzing data.
Results: Findings showed that students had a positive experience of using flipped classroom. Majority of students (79.1%) prefer flipped classroom to traditional one that the most of class time were devoted to teachers lecture.The Mean of the scores of the students’ views was 26.09±2.95. There is not any statistical significant relations between demographic data and students views, But there is a significant strong positive correlation between students’ views and the average scores(r=.88, P=.0.001).
