Just-In-Time Teaching

Thu, 14 Nov 2013 8:00 AM - 9:30 AM

Location: Taylor Hall 306
This event is also offered on Fri, 15 Nov 2013 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM


The Just-in-Time Teaching (JiTT) pedagogy blends active learning classroom methods with state-of-the art electronic communication technologies. In preparation for an interactive classroom experience, students work with strategically constructed web- based assignments with due dates just before class time. Instructors base the daily classroom activities on the student submissions. Participants in this workshop will learn the factors that would support successful implementation of JiTT, examples of how JiTT has been implemented in university classes and will actively engage in creating materials they can use in their current class(es).

In this workshop, participants will:

1. Learn the reasons and goals for implementing JiTT;
2. Learn how JiTT has been and can be implemented in a college classroom;
3. Devise questions and formulate other aspects of JiTT that can be used in participants' own classrooms; and
4. Understand the relationship between JiTT and other flipped classroom pedagogies.

Facilitator: Jim Benedict, Ph.D, Professor Emeritus, Department of Psychology
