There are many discussions and debates on the flipped classroom concepts in
the contemporary teaching approaches. Flipped classrooms are student-centered, short
tutorials and a few similar techniques that are spent for saving time. It gives massive scope
for active learning through other event participation and prioritizes the learners' interest. It
provides an enormous range for interactions among students, like the face-to-face discussion
between the students and student teachers interventions. It also initiates the pre-prepared
videos by the teachers and also by the experts in the content, keeping in mind the satisfaction
of the learner. Naturally, the teachers face initial problems in preparing the content and using
technology. The present paper discusses the pros and cons of the flipped classroom approach
and its need of the hour. It also pays attention to throw light on the challenges and prospects
while introducing it in the classroom. However, this study hopes to enhance the learner’s
involvement in the classroom activities.
