    Peer Instruction, at Carleton University (Ottawa, ON, Canada), Wednesday, June 13, 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.

    Flipping your classroom with Peer Instruction, at Wesleyan University (Middletown, CT), Monday, November 5, 2012
    This workshop will introduce on one popular flipped-class method called Peer Instruction, developed by Eric Mazur at Harvard University in the 1990s. The workshop will include a live demo of Peer Instruction and a new classroom response system developed in the Mazur Group at Harvard University that addresses the limitations of clickers.
    Flipping the STEM classroom: How to turn your students' worlds upside down, at Frontiers of Engineering Education Educational Innovation Seminar Series, Worcester Polytechnic Institute (Worcester, MA), Wednesday, November 7, 2012
    Instructors all over the globe are turning their students' worlds upside down 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 misconceptions. In this workshop, Dr. Julie Schell will introduce the flipped classroom technique, review its history, and present some practical strategies teachers can use to design learning environments that facilitate student engagement with STEM subject-matter both in and outside of class. Attendees will experience live... Read more about Flipping the STEM classroom: How to turn your students' worlds upside down

    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
    Flipping the Classroom 201, at ATL Summer Teaching Institute, NC AT & T State University (Greensboro, NC), Monday, May 13, 2013:

In this workshop, Dr. Julie Schell will introduce two research-based 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.
