Peer instruction

Peer instruction is a teaching strategy which is based on the premise that students studying the content are best place to determine what the challenging concepts are. The focus in peer instruction shifts from teaching to how students learn.  It is usually paired with lecture flipping where the students encounter content prior to lecture so that the classroom time can be freed up for activities that allow for sense making, critical thinking and assimilation of material.

For more on this see the guidance on Peer instruction.
