Many 21st century universities utilise various technologies to support face-to-face classroom teaching and promote student learning. They offer video lectures, use simulations or online discussion forums to enhance student engagement. Universities put emphasis on student interactions as active learning is playing an important role in education and in literature its been reported that students score better grades and fail less when instructors use active learning methods in the classroom. Considering the needs of students and the universities, this paper explains a flipped classroom model, which is designed for developing universities in North Cyprus to enable especially first-year students, who are normally in large and lecture-based classrooms, become more active learners. The model was designed based on the needs of the universities and the students. It aims to facilitate active learning, student engagement and instructor-student interactions.
