The flipped classroom is an innovative pedagogical approach in which students are introduced to instructional content outside of class and engage in active problem-solving and discussions during in-class sessions. This pedagogical shift empowers students to take greater responsibility for their learning pace, transforming teachers into facilitators. Despite increased interest in flipped classrooms, their implications for mathematics teacher education still need to be clarified. This study employs a Delphi methodology to investigate the advantages and challenges associated with implementing the flipped classroom approach in Vietnam’s initial mathematics teacher education. The findings reveal a high consensus among experts regarding the importance of the identified indicators related to the advantages and challenges of flipped classroom in initial mathematics teacher education. Our study also uncovers contextual and institutional constraints, providing insights into unique challenges within the Vietnamese context. This research offers guidance for improving initial mathematics teacher education through flipped classroom model.
