Engaging Students One-on-One, All At Once Session 1 , at Peer Instruction Online Course, Singapore Polytechnic (online) (Singapore), Wednesday, November 12, 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.

Using Questions to Catalyze Learning: Question Design Workshop, at Weill Cornell Medical College (New York, NY), Thursday, February 20, 2014:
Questions are the heart of engaging students in any classroom. In this workshop, we will collaborate to discover the elements of effective questions. We will practice answering different question types as a large group via a classroom response system called Learning Catalytics and contrast that experience with other classroom response systems, such as flashcards and clickers. Finally, we will work individually and in pairs on a case study to learn promising practices for developing effective questions.
More than Video: Using Innovative Pedagogies to Flip your Classroom, at Weill Cornell Medical College (New York, NY), Thursday, February 20, 2014:
Contrary to popular belief, flipped learning is much more than watching videos and doing "homework" in class. In this hands-on session, Dr. Julie Schell will introduce two research-based flipped methods called Just-in-Time Teaching and Peer Instruction. A primary goal of Peer Instruction is to radically transform students’ in-class experiences. Originally developed for use in college physics at Harvard University, thousands of teachers currently use Peer Instruction in many disciplines with many different age groups, all over the world. Participants of this session will learn three teaching... Read more about More than Video: Using Innovative Pedagogies to Flip your Classroom
