What is it about?

This project reviewed the application of an innovative pedagogical approach, the virtual flipped classroom (VFC), in postgraduate design education. The VFC is an integration of the flipped classroom (FC) and virtual canvas. It enables teachers to proactively engage students in design thinking processes and activities to achieve active learning and better learning outcomes.

Why is it important?

This study provides insights into student and staff reservations about online delivery and identifies the barriers and opportunities to study design within an entirely virtual environment.


Due to COVID-19, universities worldwide had to quickly adopt virtual learning and teaching (L&T) in 2020 and challenge our existing L&T models. The core research team of this project has implemented new approaches and ways of thinking to reconceptualise and reconfigure creative higher education (HE) practices and learning within virtual environments, including the application of the virtual flipped classroom (VFC).
