This research, conducted within the framework proposed by Jonathan Bergmann, explores the students’ as well as teachers’ perception of flipped learning. The study uses both quantitative and qualitative methods to collect data from the respondents. Separate questionnaires were used to collect the information from teachers and students, and a structured interview was conducted with teachers.

Results show both the students and teachers hold a positive perception towards flipped approach, and they consider this approach as an innovative way of teaching and learning.
