Technology can offer efficient ways to do what we have always done, but sometimes it offers a fundamentally new way for instructors, students, and content to interact. Just in Time Teaching (JiTT) is an effective, evidence-based technique for face-to-face courses that creates fast, effective feedback loops. This presentation will include what JiTT is, why it works and how it can be incorporated into your classes. JiTT can increase the quality and quantity of contact between students and instructors and deserves your consideration. Participants will guide the discussion to address practical concerns, best practices or a plan for getting started.
