Summary: This study evaluates the use of the flipped classroom at the Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine, Hong Kong.
Description: Flipping the classroom involves the delivery of video based materials – or alternatives such as print materials or audio recordings – prior to a lecture or class session. The class session is then dedicated to more active learning techniques so that basic knowledge can be applied through problem solving or case-based scenarios.

The utilisation of video based materials prior to a teaching session with active problem solving during forms the basis of the novel flipped classroom instruction. The author’s study evaluated the use of this format during the teaching of rheumatology to third year medical students. 87/106 students evaluated this format through the use of a strongly disagree (1) to strongly agree (5) Likert scale.
