Peer Instruction: Eric Mazur’s Contribution to Education




Bouffard, Germain

Harvard University’s Professor Eric Mazur has contributed enormously to the development of peer instruction, an educational approach whereby students bolster their collaborative relations within a team or group in building and sharing knowledge by discussing their thinking and answers with their peers. Germain Bouffard looks back on Mazur’s seminal work, in which we find, not only examples of potential applications of this approach at the college level, but also remarks on course preparation, assessment, and the proper use of classroom teaching time.
