What is Behind the Flipped Classroom?

There has been much talk of the concept of the ‘flipped classroom’ as a way forward in learning. What does this entail?

They develop their skills through what might be seen as collaborative learning, with the teacher marshalling the learning rather than the class or the organisation of information. The deployment of independent research skills dominate.
