Just-in-Time Teaching Approach
Novak, Patterson, Gavrin, and Christian
Actively engage students outside of the classroom (WWW) to enhance their in-class experience.
Students access questions over the web and submit answers on the same web page via a form. Instructor looks at student submissions and crafts a lecture around them by:
showing selected student responses
spending more/less time on a topic
primed Peer Instruction
Students are better prepared for class and better motivated to learn the correct answers and justifications.
pre-instruction (usually) exercises
end of chapter conceptual questions
Interactive (small, scriptable, Java) exercises
topic closure, once a week
