are thinking is hard What if we could catch
and repair misconceptions
moments after they appear? A possible solution:
PEER INSTRUCTION PI is structured around
critical thinking and communication The effectiveness of PI
is backed up by over
20 years of SoTL research results MTH 227 (Linear Algebra) in Winter 2013 was redesigned with PI as the central method. Here's what happened. Could you use this in one of your classes?
What kinds of questions could you ask?
What would you do with the data? License: XPY3WPE
Session: 638841 Of 6000 physics students in traditional and "interactive engagement" classes, the IE students' learning gains were 2 sd's higher than traditional students'. (Hake 1997) Study of undergraduate physics courses over a 7-year period shows normalized learning gain differences between males and females becomes statistically insignificant under peer instruction. (Lorenzo Crouch Mazur 2006). Fall 2012: Pew Technology Enhancement

Learning Catalytics
and nine Nexus 7 tablet computers "Thin slices" sampled frequently Students using PI showed statistically significant gains on key NSSE items versus similar students in traditional instruction courses (Bates Galloway 2012) Physics students showed more improvement in computational problems in a PI class versus a traditional class, even though less time was spent in class discussing computational problems (Mazur 1997) C.
