Teaching Challenging Concepts using Peer Instruction

WEBINAR (54 minutes) recorded April 5, 2017

Peer Instruction is a structured approach for helping students improve their understanding of such challenging concepts. Eric Mazur and Julie Schell have gathered a significant amount of data showing improved learning using Peer Instruction. This session will introduce the Peer Instruction approach and how the presenter, Dena Leggett, uses it in her classroom.
