Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate the possible ways in which the flipped classroom could promote independent learning. Two research questions were formulated: 1. What are the possible elements of independent learning that the flipped classroom can develop? 2. What are the possible skills required by teachers and students for independent learning that the flipped classroom can
develop? The research was conducted in a secondary school in Cyprus. A mixed methodology was selected and the participants were invited to concurrently complete one quantitative and one qualitative questionnaire. The analysis of the answers has shown that the implementation of the flipped classroom can promote independent learning and develop, to a greater or lesser degree, its elements and the skills required by teachers and students. It has also revealed the strengths of this teaching method but also some weaknesses that must be considered. Future research that would periodically evaluate the degree of independent learning, diagnose needs and set new objectives is recommended.
