Confessions of a Converted Lecturer - Dr. Eric Mazur

Hear Eric Mazur recount the story of how he discovered that his lectures weren't working (in spite of rave reviews from his students), and responded by inventing Peer Instruction, an interactive engagement approach that leads to improved student learning in a modified lecture setting. Learn how you can use Peer Instruction to support active learning in your classroom. (This presentation is not part of the New Faculty Workshop, but is similar to the presentation Dr. Mazur regularly gives there.)
