This presentation is based on a multi-national study (Australia, USA, UK) investigating educators’ use and perceptions of the flipped classroom method to teach veterinary students. This teaching approach involves students working independently prior to class to grasp basic concepts using videos, texts and online resources, then participating in active, applied learning and problem solving exercises in class (King 1993, Lage, Platt and Treglia 2000; McDonald and Smith 2013). Use of this method is likely to be increasingly expected by both education providers and students as healthcare education methods shift towards greater use of online technologies and student-centred learning approaches (Prober and Khan 2013). This investigation provides insight into current techniques for flipped classroom teaching in veterinary education, together with educators’ perceptions of the opportunities, benefits and barriers to its implementation. The results generate baseline data for future comparison as the use of this method evolves in veterinary education, and are of immediate practical use to educators and institutions seeking to implement innovative teaching approaches in their curricula.
