Recreating questions in real-time: the Peer Instruction Method made easy

How do you implement the Peer Instruction Method? The theory itself is straightforward enough, but how do you put it into practice? Let’s say you have to quiz 150 students, analyse the results, give them a moment to discuss their answers, and ask them that same question again. How do you accomplish that without disrupting the flow of your lecture?

It’s simple: you use Wooclap’s new feature to duplicate the question in real-time.

Imagine you’ve prepared a question to gauge how well your students understand the subject matter, otherwise known in the Peer Instruction Method as a ConcepTest. The results show they haven’t quite grasped the concept yet, so you tell them to discuss their answer with other students.

After a few minutes, you’d like to see what they’ve learned from each other by asking them that same ConcepTest again, but how? Before, you would have had to interrupt your presentation to duplicate your question. Now, you can click a single button to create a copy of your question in the blink of an eye.

Have a look at the animation below, which, by the way, was not sped up!

Duplicate questions in real-time with Wooclap's new feature

This feature may seem small, but it is instrumental in applying the Peer Instruction Method - which has been shown to improve learning and student confidence - easily and effectively. But don’t take my word for it, see for yourself!
