Abstract: The primary goals of peer instruction are to encourage and foster student interaction and engagement during lectures, while focusing students’ attention on underlying concepts and techniques. This workshop is a follow-up to Professor Eric Mazur’s talks on the techniques of peer instruction and assessment we learned from him back in December 2013. This workshop presents an ideal opportunity for faculty members to contribute experiences implementing peer instruction in the classroom from multiple disciplines and to subsequently share their views and practices based on some preliminary trials.
