Frontiers in Science Teaching, Aarhus University (Aarhus, Denmark)
Teaching within an academic research career is often cast as a private enterprise, representing a silo among professorsâ more communal work within research groups and service activities. Just like new frontiers in science research, innovation in science education often involves joint ventures. In this presentation, we introduce for the first time Peer Instruction Network, a new social network developed at Harvard University to connect educators worldwide in their efforts to shape the terrains of how and what people learn in the 21st century. The presentation will include a live demonstration of Peer Instruction Network and its mechanisms for helping innovative educators everywhere connect, share, and learn.
