In this paper, the flipped class strategy has been designed for electromechanical devices lessons. As a first step towards flipping the classroom two lessons are selected from the curriculum common. Delivering lecture content of selected topics before coming to class through notes and other media has been done, while the class time is effectively engaged in high-level thinking. The first step is to try to create the required educational materials to provide content related to topics outside of classroom environment. The second step is to design effective learning strategies for Problem Solving. JIGSAW method has been used for the in the classroom activity. The second step is to design effective learning strategies for Problem Solving. JIGSAW method has been used for the in the classroom activity. Presently, there are limited researches on the effect of the flipped classroom model of Engineering Education. A course such as electromechanical devices that covers problem-solving and design aspects, demands time for teaching the concepts in an effective and efficient way and can be better taught through the use of the flipped classroom approach. This work will be useful for faculty members in other Engineering departments.
