Peer Instruction is an established and proven teaching/learning strategy in mathematics and physics. The Boonshoft School of Medicine ‘field tested’ it for two years before incorporating it as one of three teaching/learning strategies for an entirely new curriculum — the WrightCurriculum — in 2017. The WrightCurriculum is lecture-free and Peer Instruction comprises about 60% of classroom time. As discovered in mathematics and physics, student achievement has been robust, in large part because the strategy uses and reinforces practice principles from the science of learning. In addition, from what we know about GenZ, it is a perfect pedagogical fit for their learning preferences. 

You are invited to learn from our faculty and students in this dynamic one day event:

  • How can students learn without lectures?
  • Can it work in my setting?
  • How do you get student and faculty buy-in?
  • Do you have outcome data?

In this Workshop you will:

  • Watch a “Live Stream” Peer Instruction session with interactive interpretation by course faculty
  • Learn about the “Student Experience” during a lunchtime student round table
  • Hear “lessons learned through facilitation” from faculty, followed by a Q&A
  • Participate in a Peer Instruction activity to engage with PI "first hand"
  • Work in a team and learn to write questions for Peer Instruction sessions
