ABSTRACT:  The present study was focussing on assessing the effectiveness of flipped learning in developing higher order thinking skills among prospective teachers studying the B.Ed. program. A pre-test post-test control group experimental research design was adopted with a sample of total 64 number of prospective teachers of second semester of B.Ed. course of pre-service teacher education program. Simple random sampling technique was used to form experimental and control group. A test on higher order thinking skills based on a paper of B.Ed. course was developed. The experimental group was taught by following traditional flipped learning approach whereas the control group was taught by lecture method. Before and after the intervention, test was administered to both the groups. The mean difference at post-test between experimental and control group was found to be significant at 0.05 level of significance, thus concluding the study that flipped learning method has a significant effect on developing higher order thinking skills than lecture method.  The study calls for teaching community to use flipped learning strategy as an instructional method in teaching and research community to conduct future researches and government bodies to empower the teachers to use the flipped learning method.
