Flipped classroom was performed on 133 students in “Cells and Molecules” course on junior leveled students at the American University of Science and Technology (AUST) – Achrafiyeh Campus. This study is one of the pioneering quantitative studies assessing the impact of flipping classroom on students in Lebanon. The aim of this study is to test if the flipped classroom was to challenge, motivate, engage students in their learning process, and use class time in a more effective way. The data collected in the pre and post questionnaires was the basis for evaluating students’ reaction towards their traditional class verses the newly introduced flipped module. The results of the study are encouraging; comprehension, enthusiasm reflected through participation and collaboration and class time effectiveness for both instructor and student. The impact of the flipping on students’ performance was evaluated through a post exam in which their average increased by 13 points, and students were able to elaborate their answers. The outcomes of this study are encouraging and pave the road for future researchers on education on the Lebanese educational system.
