A conventional teaching or training setting where learners/students are in the same room as the trainer/teacher and therefore face to face with each other, as opposed to online training where they are remote from each other.

flipped classroom

The reverse of the traditional learning environment where knowledge is delivered by teachers to students in the classroom and homework and other activities are done elsewhere. In the ‘flipped’ classroom, learning material is delivered online in advance and the classroom becomes the space for students and teachers to discuss the material, apply their learning and engage with each other in a more active and focused way.
