Peer Instruction is an evidence-based instructional strategy that promotes students’ engagement and conceptual thinking. It provides real-time feedback to instructors on students’ understanding of the concept being taught. This strategy, which can be used in tandem with clickers or other personal response systems, has been demonstrated to be one of the most successful student-centered instructional practices for the STEM classroom. The majority of the UNL faculty who have participated in this program have integrated Peer Instruction permanently in their teaching.
