  Description This workshop will introduce the Just-in-Time Teaching (JiTT) method, which promotes active learning in the classroom, improves student engagement and morale, and helps students to stay caught up in the class. JiTT does this by establishing feedback between students' homework/study time and the time they spend in the classroom. The World Wide Web is used as a communications tool to establish this feedback. During the workshop, participants will learn what JiTT is, why it works, and how it can be implemented in a wide range of educational settings. Assessment data and techniques will also be discussed. There will be an emphasis on developing the resources to implement JiTT easily and effectively, and participants will leave the session with some material for their courses already complete. JiTT has been adopted by hundreds of faculty worldwide, in a wide range of classes in science, mathematics, and the humanities.
