What is Peer Instruction…in 2 mins


In this post, I give a 2ish minute video primer on Peer Instruction and how to implement it with fidelity. The video has about 50 seconds of preamble and closing for 2.56 minutes total. This basic introduction includes a handful of quick tips for avoiding common pitfalls.

Some key ideas introduced in the video for which I recommend the linked supplemental readings are: flipped classrooms pre-class assignments, ConcepTests, Peer Instruction Workflow, Voting Sequences, Displaying Results, Grouping Students for Productive Conversations, and Classroom Response Systems. Finally, if you are ready to get started using Peer Instruction, check out the Peer Instruction Quick Start Guide, which has been translated into several languages.
