This paper presents the application of the principles of Flipped Classroom to the teaching of the construction of Force, Moment and Torque diagrams of a loaded shaft. Flipping the Classroom is a proposal in the context of Blended Learning which suggests that in-class students’ activities, supported by learning material made available to them in advance, could replace the traditional scheme of teacher led lectures followed by homework. Trying to take advantage of the benefits of Blended Learning, we introduced a Flipped Classroom within a Machine Design course of the Mechanical Engineering Educators Curriculum.
