The rapid growth in the digitalization and outbreak of COVID pandemic has accelerated the inclusion of technology in education. Higher education in the present world of digitalization faces the challenge of providing high quality education which is cost effective and also caters to the needs of students from diverse backgrounds. Flipped classroom has been positioned as an integrated pedagogical approach which can be implemented in higher education so as to cater to the needs of students of digital world. There is lack of sufficient information regarding implementation designs of flipped classroom. Therefore, present research was conducted to understand the flipped classroom implementation. This paper is a review paper in which a systematic review of implementation designs of flipped classroom has been done. The studies were taken from the year 2010-2023. JSTOR, Springer and Taylor Francis repositories were consulted for the review. A total of 27 review articles were included for conducting the present study. Based on the review the key characteristics of flipped classroom have been determined. The implementation designs of flipped classroom based on systematic review of literature have been discussed. Finally, the best approach for implementing flipped classroom with effectiveness has been assumed.
