Flipped classroom is not only the flipping of knowledge imparting and knowledge internalization, but also the all-round reform of education concept, teaching content, teaching methods, teaching means and teaching evaluation. Multimodality provides a theoretical perspective and analytical framework for the teaching design of flipped classroom. Multimodality theory fits many characteristics of flipped classroom, which is conducive to giving full play to the advantages of flipped classroom. With the help of multimodal theory and multimodal teaching ideas, this study constructs a flipped classroom teaching mode under the multimodal perspective, which takes the dynamic teaching structure as the core and the open multimodal learning environment as the all-round support, and gives some operational suggestions.
