In the course of the digitalization of teaching, innovative teaching concepts are increasingly being developed and integrated into university teaching, which opens up new opportunities for teaching and learning. The Inverted Classroom Model (ICM) is a teaching model based on the idea of " inverting" the basic activities of the classical lecture. In traditional teaching concepts, content input is provided by the teachers in front of a large group of students in the lecture hall (in-class ), while further tasks are usually carried out at home in individual work (out-of-class). In the Inverted Classroom (IC), on the other hand, knowledge is conveyed purely in terms of content by means of multimedia online material, so that the face-to-face event in the large group can be used for a joint, in-depth examination of what has been learned.
