The Flipped Classroom: A Mixed Methods Study of Academic Performance and Student Perception in EAP Writing Context
Renata Pavanelli

The flipped classroom relies on the use of video technology to create instructional lectures delivered online and classroom meetings with in-class exercises that involve active learning.

This study consisted of 22 participants enrolled in two advanced EAP writing courses in a large Southern State College and sought to measure whether the flipped model improved students’ academic writing performance and understand their perceptions of the flipped instruction.

Qualitative results also indicated that students positively perceived the use of the flipped model as more effective and as a great resource of learning that helped them improve their writing skills in an interactive and collaborative environment.
