    Engaging Students One-on-One, All At Once Session 2 , at Peer Instruction Online Course, Hong Kong Polytecnic University (online) (Hong Kong, China), Friday, September 26, 2014:
    This short-course introduces participants to the ideas of Peer Instruction (PI) and Just- in-Time-Teaching (JiTT), two research-based methods for engaging students, improving conceptual understanding, increasing retention in courses and programs, and enhancing academic performance. Participants will also learn about a new approach to instructional design. Finally, participants will apply the knowledge gained to a specific course module they are (or will be) teaching, by re-designing (or designing) the syllabus for this course module and developing a plan for implementing PI and JiTT.

    Reflection on the implementation of Peer Instruction at SPU, at Program on Peer Instruction, Singapore Polytechnic (Singapore), Monday, March 16, 2015
    Part I: Three staff members who attended the Nov 2014 Peer Instruction online workshop will present their experience and challenges and have an open discussion on how to improve the implementation of Flipped with Peer Instruction lessons in their courses with Professor Mazur. See below for suggested structure.

    Part II: Three (different) staff members who participated in the Nov 2014 Peer Instruction online workshop will each demonstrate a ConcepTest (format: brief intro, ConcepTest in action, wrap up). Participants will then discuss and reflect on the merits of each ConcepTest.

    Engaging Students One-on-One, at Program on Peer Instruction, Singapore Polytechnic (Singapore), Monday, March 16, 2015:
    This workshop will familiarize participants to the ideas of Peer Instruction and Just- in-Time-Teaching, two research-based methods for engaging students, improving conceptual understanding, increasing retention in courses and programs, and enhancing academic performance.
    Technology and Peer Instruction, at Program on Peer Instruction, Singapore Polytechnic (Singapore), Monday, March 16, 2015:
    Demonstration and discussion of the role of technology in the implementation of Peer Instruction. In particular, we will demonstrate Learning Catalytics as a platform for administering ConcepTests and implementing Just-in-Time-Teaching. We will also demonstrate a social document annotation system to get students prepared for class.
    Peer Instruction, at Exploring Change: Innovative Ways to Create Quality Learning Opportunities -- A Day of Faculty Enrichment, Northwestern Oklahoma State University (Alva, OK), Wednesday, March 25, 2015:
    The basic goals of Peer Instruction are to encourage and make use of student interaction during lectures, while focusing students' attention on underlying concepts and techniques. The method has been assessed in many studies using standardized, diagnostic tests and shown to be considerably more effective than the conventional lecture approach to teaching. Peer Instruction is now used in a wide range of science and math courses at the college and secondary level. In this 2-3 hour long workshop, participants will learn about Peer Instruction, serve as the "class" in which Peer Instruction is... Read more about Peer Instruction
