6. High impact Teaching

Student-centred teaching / flipping your classroom / peer instruction

High impact teaching practices introduce student-centred activities and active learning, there are many strategies but two options are:

  • Flipping: moving the bulk of the new content into resources that students access outside of class time, such as readings, videos or screen casts that you make, or using online resources. 
  • Peer teaching (with or without flipping): During class, students work in small groups during class time to discuss stimulus material or problem-solve. This form of active learning provides feedback to the whole group. Many different technological innovations have been used to implement these teaching strategies and there is evidence that they increase retention and progression as well as improving learning outcomes.
