Many studies have been conducted for a relatively short period of time since the introduction of flipped learning in the country. However, most research focuses on the ways of flipped learning and its efficiency, hence, the perception of the teacher about flipped learning has not been studied yet. In this study, to investigate the teacher's perception of flipped learning, 1,038 teachers conducted the survey which consists of three areas such as their understandings of flipped learning, their using patterns and their expectations of flipped learning in the future. The results showed that teacher's understanding and using state of flipped learning was not that high. Also, they were very cautious of using flipped learning for their class. Based on the results, the activation plans of flipped Learning were also proposed.
