The flipped classroom has drawn much attention because it facilitates the transition from a teacher-centered classroom to a student-centered classroom. Taking an experiment of the phenanthroline spectrophotometric determination of micro-iron in water, as an example, the paper explores the application of the flipped classroom teaching mode in college chemistry laboratory teaching for non-chemistry majors. According to the flipped classroom teaching process, this paper studies the instructional design and implementation of the pre-class video, the pre-class test and classroom activities in class. And it also explores the teaching method of the scientific and technological literature application of a pre-class video. Classroom activities provide students with the opportunity to present themselves. The pre-class video and the testing help students to prepare experiment, broaden the vision of students, and motivate students' interest in the chemistry experiment.
