Exploring the Innovative Pedagogy of Peer Instruction
How can I help my students learn in ways that pique their interest and enrich their subject matter understanding? We will explore this perennial question by considering an innovative, research-based teaching method called Peer Instruction (PI). Developed by Dr. Eric Mazur to address major gaps in students' conceptual knowledge of physics at Harvard University, this interactive pedagogical method is now widely used by thousands of instructors across the world. PI leverages the power of social learning and the latest advances in instructional technology to confront students' misconceptions and activate their minds while providing instant feedback to faculty. Most of all teaching with Peer Instruction is fun for teachers and students alike. Attendees will participate in live demonstrations of Peer Instruction and test out Learning Catalytics the  classroom response systems used in OnRamps.
