    Peer Instruction workshop, at SSAT National Conference: Innovating Learning (Liverpool, UK), Tuesday, December 4, 2012:
    Most -- if not all -- of the important skills in our lives are acquired outside the traditional classroom setting. Yet we continue to teach using lectures where students passively take down information. Peer instruction is a research-based pedagogy that actively engages students in the classroom and has been shown to dramatically improve conceptual understanding, even in large classes. While successfully implementing peer instruction doesn't require any technology, using the right technology can improve student engagement, increase learning, and make it easier to implement peer instruction in...

    Peer Instruction, at COPI 2012, Beijing Normal University (Beijing, China), Friday, December 14, 2012:
    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

    Flipping the Math classroom: How to turn your students' worlds right-side up , at New Jersey City University (Jersey City, NJ), Friday, February 1, 2013:
    Instructors all over the globe are turning their students' worlds around by flipping their classrooms. In a flipped class, teachers typically move information coverage out of the lecture hall so that they can better leverage in-class time to address student difficulties and misconceptions. In this three hour workshop, Dr. Julie Schell will introduce the basic flipped classroom technique, review its history, and present two practical flipped teaching methods teachers can use to design learning environments that facilitate student engagement with mathematical subject-matter both in and outside...

    Flipping the STEM classroom: How to turn your students' worlds right-side up , at Mount Royal University (Calgary, Alberta, Canada), Tuesday, February 5, 2013:
    STEM faculty all over the globe are turning their students' worlds around by flipping their classrooms. In a flipped class, teachers typically move information coverage out of the lecture hall so that they can better leverage in-class time to address student difficulties and misconceptions about STEM subject matter. Some teachers are even flipping laboratories.  In this workshop, Dr. Julie Schell will introduce the flipped classroom technique, review its history, and present two practical strategies teachers can use to design learning environments that facilitate student engagement with...

    Innovative flipped classrooms, at Texas Woman's University (Denton, TX), Tuesday, March 5, 2013:
    Simply putting lectures online is one way to flip a class, but it is not the best way. In this workshop, Dr. Julie Schell will introduce two practical strategies teachers can use to design learning environments that boost student engagement with subject-matter both in and outside of class. Attendees will experience live demonstrations of one flipped class technique called Peer Instruction, developed at Harvard University and backed by 20 years of research, that can be used in any discipline and with any class size. (1.5 hrs)

    Peer Instruction 2.0: Beyond a 90's pedagogy, at CSM Faculty Development Workshops, Rowan University (Glassboro, NJ), Friday, April 12, 2013
    Peer Instruction (PI) is a research-based, interactive teaching method that helps instructors engagestudents in and out of class. The centerpiece of Peer Instruction is the ConcepTest, a short conceptual question that helps elicit, uncover and resolve student misconceptions. “Turn to your neighbor” is the classic catch phrase of PI methodology, whereby after a brief mini-lecture in class, teachers encourage students to think about a question, vote on their answer, and then turn to their neighbor to engage, rather than sit passively in a lecture. In this presentation, we examine three big... Read more about Peer Instruction 2.0: Beyond a 90's pedagogy
