The flipped classroom is being increasingly used in a wide range of instructional situations, yet little is known about how to facilitate it. The purpose of this study is to explore what types of learning activities in a flipped classroom are perceived to be the most effective in the achievement of desired course competencies. This case study specifically focused on the classroom lab sessions\u2014the student-centered classroom\u2014rather than online self-learning modules. Employing a case study using a mixed method approach, this research identifies effective pedagogy in facilitating a flipped classroom. Merrill\u2019s (2002) first principles of instruction were used as a research framework. While results show that students engaged in learning activities of demonstration and application, they were barely exposed to higher-order learning activities. That leads to the conclusion that implementing problem-centered instructional activities, accompanied by desirable challenges, is highly advisable to foster deep engagement. Implications and future directions are discussed.RsumUne investigation sur des pdagogies efficaces dans une salle de classe inverse: Une tude de casLa classe inverse est de plus en plus utilise dans un large ventail de situations pdagogiques, mais on en sait peu sur la faon de la faciliter. Le but de cette tude est d'explorer quels types d'activits dans une salle de classe inverse sont perus comme tant les plus efficaces dans la ralisation des comptences de cours vises. Cette tude de cas a t spcifiquement centre sur des sessions de laboratoire en classe \u2013 classe centre sur l'tudiant \u2014 plutt que des modules d'auto-apprentissage en ligne. En se servant d\u2019une tude de cas tout en utilisant une approche de mthodes mixtes, cette recherche propose une pdagogie efficace pour faciliter une salle de classe inverse. Les premiers principes d'instruction de Merrill (2002) ont t utiliss comme cadre de rfrence pour la recherche. Bien que les rsultats montrent que les tudiants participaient des activits d\u2019apprentissage de dmonstration et d'application, ils taient peine exposs des activits d'apprentissage d'ordre suprieur. Cela mne la conclusion que la mise en \u0153uvre d\u2019activits pdagogiques centres sur les problmes, accompagnes de dfis souhaitables, est hautement recommande pour favoriser l'engagement profond. Les implications et les orientations futures sont discutes.
