In India, the new teaching model of a flipped classroom is emerging in higher education to promote student-centered learning.

With this in mind, a survey on undergraduate students perceptions of the flipped classroom were evaluated at the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences.

The studio classroom facilitates team-based learning by seating students in the round at ten tables with eight students to a table. The “flipped classroom” concept places special emphasis on the social aspect of learning, by moving the information in advance of class time and making the face-to-face sessions a way of enhancing understanding and building new knowledge through interaction with peers and professors.
