Abstract: Technology can offer efficient ways 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 applies web technology to create fast, effective feedback loops. Want your students to prepare? Want insight into their thinking? JiTT can increase the quality and quantity of contact with students and deserves your consideration.
