This paper reports on the findings of a study conducted to investigate how a flipped classroom model was effectively used to facilitate an action research course. It provides a better understanding of a flipped classroom approach for higher education. Data was collected from the graduate students who were undergoing the instruction using questionnaires with closed-response rating scales and open-ended questions. Results indicated the following: Learning modules together with face-to-face meeting supported students’ learning; little or no changes were suggested towards how the instructor facilitated the course; students learned more from in-class time sessions. Flipped classroom model offered a great use of technology to facilitate teaching and learning. These results collectively suggested that a flipped classroom model could have positive effects on students’ learning experiences.
