Episode 9: Peer instruction

07 May 2020

This month's episode focuses on Peer Instruction, a classroom practice we recently covered in a Pedagogy Quick Read. There is compelling evidence that Peer Instruction can have a significant impact on learning outcomes for students if delivered well. Emma Posey and I talk about the practice, the evidence and how peer instruction might be relevant during periods of remote teaching.
