Peer Instruction is a researched based highly engaged instructional strategy developed by Professor Eric Mazur in the 1990’s at Harvard University. It is implemented best in a flipped learning format, where students anticipate and prepare for deeper level learning during class time. This means that they engage with pre-class assignments (at home or in study groups) before class meets.
