Just-In-Time Teaching

via Scout Report

The very notion of “just-in-time” (JiTT) teaching may seem to some to sound
like a phrase adopted from the world of corporate culture, but in fact, it’s
actually a “…teaching and learning strategy based on the interaction between
web-based study assignments and an active learner classroom.”

From Just-In-Time Teaching website

Students respond electronically to carefully constructed web-based assignments which are due shortly before class, and the instructor reads the student submissions "just-in-time" to adjust the classroom lesson to suit the students' needs. Thus, the heart of JiTT is the "feedback loop" formed by the students' outside-of-class preparation that fundamentally affects what happens during the subsequent in-class time together.
