Active Learning in Action

Video clips of Professor Eric Mazur on innovative teaching techniques, as well as faculty conversations on active learning.

The first video below shows physics professor Eric Mazur (profiled in the feature article "Twilight of the Lecture") engaging in “peer instruction” with a class.  The remaining  clips are taken from a “Conversations @ FAS” program at Harvard on February 11, 2011, with faculty members David Malan of computer science, Diane Paulus of English and the American Repertory Theater, and Christopher Winship of sociology. (See also the Harvard Magazine coverage of this program.)
