How can you engage your students and be sure they are learning the conceptual foundations of a lecture course? In From Questions to Concepts, Harvard University Professor Eric Mazur introduces Peer Instruction and Just-in-Time teaching–two innovative techniques for lectures that use in-class discussion and immediate feedback to improve student learning. Using these techniques ion his innovative undergraduate physics course, Mazur demonstrates how lectures and active learning can be successfully combined.
