SponsorshipThis study was financed by PIBD 17–12 project entitled Flipped peer classroom, as an innovative teaching methodology for the training of future professionals in Education through semi-presence and collaborative learning environments in university. This project was endorsed by the National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation (ANECA) and the Vice-Rectorate for Quality Assurance of the University of Granada (Spain).
This research analyzed Physical Education students’ degree of academic performance with the incorporation of active methodologies, specifically flipped classroom mixed learning, restricted to evaluation periods in the months of June and September. The study focused on whether there are significant differences in this variable through the scores obtained. Through a simple random sampling, 131 students participated in this empiric-analytic research, using an ex-post-facto study with a retrospective design with quasi-control group. A robust test of averages comparison, multiple linear regressions and an evaluation of the relative importance of predictors was conducted. The results show how flipped classroom methodology linearly and positively influences academic performance and correlational motivation and support. As main conclusion, in a hybrid and digitalized learning context, the value of the consideration of active methodologies (flipped classroom) based on emerging pedagogies, allows improving students’ achievement and competence development, providing critical, significant, ubiquitous, transformational and especially motivating experiences.
