This paper explores and presents some preliminary findings of implementing a flipped learning approach into
the Aalborg University Problem-Based Learning environment. An analysis of the learning theoretical framework
of the flipped learning approach in a Problem-Based Learning environment is carried out and this points at some
structural concerns for motivating the students. Drawing on scaffolding and self-determination theory a new
semester structure of a flipped and integrated semester is implemented at a 4th semester BSc program in
Medialogy. The experiment, and an explorative case study, were conducted as part of a three-year research
project called “Future directions for Problem-Based Learning in a digital age” carried out at Aalborg University,
Copenhagen, Denmark. Preliminary findings on the students’ learning experience being part of this new flipped
and integrated semester concept are presented and discussed.
