“How to flip your classroom when the world is flipping out” - by Eric Mazur.

About the webinar

Having transitioned to remote teaching the next challenge is making online sessions interactive to keep students engaged and motivated.

To support your efforts we have invited Eric Mazur, Professor of Physics at Harvard University an expert in peer instruction to share his pedagogical methodology on virtual classes.

This webinar will utilize the digital tools below as examples of ways to support your students remotely:

  • Perusall: a social learning platform that allows students to actively read material posted by instructors or adopted from the catalog and interact with classmates in the context of the reading.
  • Learning Catalytics: an interactive student response tool that encourages team-based learning by using students’ smartphones, tablets, or laptops to engage them in interactive tasks and thinking.
