Just in Time Teaching (JiTT) is a student centered approach to teaching and learning that makes regular use of before-class questions or problems that make visible to both students and instructors the nature of students’ understandings and misunderstandings of course material. JiTT can help instructors make efficient and effective use of class time and facilitates the development of students’ abilities to reflect on and regulate their own learning processes. This workshop will provide the rationale for the use of JiTT and help participants explore its use in their own courses.
