Flipped learning is a pedagogic model in which the typical lecture and homework elements of a course are reversed. Short video lectures or e-learning contents or other learning materials are viewed by students at home before the in-class session, while students are mainly carried out diverse active learning activities such as the discussions, exercises, team projects and so on in class time. Recently flipped learning has been emerging as an effective teaching-learning method that can train the 21st century talents who can create creative values based on fusion competencies. Based on the experience in applying the flipped learning to the database class that is an elective course of the school of computer engineering through three semesters, this paper proposes a flipped learning model consists of 7 steps in detail. Also, this paper analyzes the effects and weak points of the flipped learning and proposes several things for the successful flipped learning application.
