Keywords: Flip Class ; Active Learning ; Student Attitudes ; Student-Centered

Flipped classroom is a variant of 'student-centered' approach by extending the learning beyond classroom environment. Such a model is becoming popular in the recent years owing to the fast development of advanced technology and high speed Internet. The purpose of this presentation is to share the experience of teaching an introductory statistics course using the flipped classroom approach. Students' performances, attitudes and experiences towards this approach will be discussed. Moreover, the instructor's reflection of the experience will be shared. The data were collected from two semesters of implementing the flip class taught in an active learning class environment. In general, students' performances are improved, especially the DEW rates are reduced from 25% down to less than 5%. However, students' attitudes and their experiences about flip class approach are more negative than positive.
