written by Eric Mazur
In this article, Harvard physics professor Eric Mazur describes his evolution from lecturing to dynamically engaging students in introductory physics courses. He discusses how he pivoted away from lectures to active learning through audience response systems (i.e. Clickers), peer interaction, cooperative learning opportunities, and immediate feedback from teacher-to-student to reinforce learning. The article references research in support of active learning pedagogies.
