Flipped Classrooms

In a flipped classroom, students use class time to practice active learning, usually by working together or with the instructor on what might have formerly been "homework". For the professor, the goal is to provide immediate feedback to students and to gain a faster understanding of how well students are accomplishing the course outcomes. References for flipped classrooms include the following:

The University of Michigan's Center for Research on Learning and Teaching offers helpful resources on how to flip your classroom.
