Learn about Flipping Your Class at First International Conference on Peer Instruction

· Peer Instruction

For the first time since Peer Instruction was developed in the 1990s, Mazur, a group of scholars from Asia and the Pacific, and Beijing Normal University are organizing a conference. Innovative educators from across the globe will connect, share, and learn about how to flip their class using this research-based method at an inaugural event this winter. The conference will be held at Beijing Normal University from December 15-16, with a pre-conference workshop led by Eric Mazur on December 14, 2012.

    Hi there! I work for Avanti Learning Centres in India, a social enterprise that uses the Peer Instruction learning method to provide affordable education here in India. I was wondering if you could estimate how many schools use the PI method now, as of 2015?

    This looks like an excellent event. In Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) I know that may providers use the resources on http://WWW.TESOLacademic.org as input for the flipped classroom, which then allows for more engaging discussion in the classroom itself. I would love to come and talk about this at the conference, but alas these days I only do international conferences if invited to do so (and with a travel grant from the organisers). The limited funding that I have goes back into the site itself. Enjoy the conference one and all. Huw
