15 February 2012 – Researchers at Harvard University have launched a new global social network for users of interactive teaching methods.
Called Peer Instruction Network it relies on the power of the “flipped classroom” where students study before rather than after class.
As a result, the classroom becomes a place for active learning, questions, and discussion. Instructors spend their time addressing students’ difficulties rather than lecturing.
PI is used across multiple disciplines from the sciences to the humanities. It serves as a hub for educators to connect and share their PI experiences, submit questions, and engage with other PI users.
