Technological developments allowed lecturers to be moved outside the classroom.

Classroom Flipping is one of the those example where the content of the lecture is

viewed by the students outside of the classroom by using technology and freeing class

time to practice or apply the material prepared by the students via interactive activities.

This study surveys the perceptions of a flipped module in an MA TESOL programme in a

British University. To do this, a mixed method has been used with questionnaires, opend-

ended questions, and follow-up interviews. The finding of this study showed that

students generally had a positive perception of the flipped classroom, however there

considerations about teachers’ rule in the classroom and the structure of the classroom.

The participants needed more teachers’ intervention when difficult topics are being

covered and better structuring the classroom. The instructors, on the other hand, were

quite pleased with it although they were complains about a few passive students. The

findings of this study will be discussed on how it will contribute improving the flipped

module with future groups.
