Most large lecture classes, both at my private college and at the state schools my friends attended, also had a mandatory-attendance discussion session, which had smaller class sizes and were entirely "discussion, peer tutoring or professor-(or TA)-led exploration." It sounds to me like universities have been "flipping" their classes for a very long time.

We do have tutorials, but they are inconsistent.
