Description: Inter-teaching was developed by Boyce and Hineline (2002) and involves less reliance on traditional lecture and more student engagement. The general structure of inter-teaching involves: creation of a preparation guide, in-class discussion of the prep guide items among student pairs, student reflection on discussion, and clarifying lectures. One of the challenges facing instructors in making the transition from traditional lecture to inter-teaching is the creation of the Prep Guides. This workshop will provide an overview of the Inter-teaching method, some tips on how to increase the quality of student discussion in class, and facilitate development of effective Prep Guides. Participants are encouraged to identify a specific course to incorporate inter-teaching and to bring relevant course materials for reference during the workshop.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to: (1) Identify and describe the components of inter-teaching; (2) Identify and describe the elements of an effective prep guide; (3) Critique sample prep guides according to the provided guidelines; (4) Develop a prep guide for at least one chapter or unit of instructional content; (5) Identify and describe methods to assess the effectiveness of inter-teaching.
Activities: Instructional strategies include lecture, whole group active responding, small group discussion and activities, and individual practice of skills with instructor feedback.
Audience: Instructors of undergraduate or graduate courses in psychology, Applied Behavior Analysis, or related content
