Transformative Learning Conference 2015 Keynote Presenter

Dr. Eric Mazur

Dr. Eric Mazur, author of Peer Instruction: A User’s Manual, will present the keynote session on Friday morning, March 27, and will conduct a 3-hour pre-conference workshop on Thursday afternoon, March 26.

Dr. Mazur is famous for his work in actively engaging students in their learning as a means of reaching key conceptual understandings. He is a pioneer in “flipping” classrooms and is renowned as an educator of college faculty. Peer instruction and other strategies employed by Dr. Mazur are effective in prompting Transformative Learning, and we’re delighted he’ll be sharing ideas and strategies at the conference.

Recognition for his contributions to college instructional practice came with the recent announcement of Dr. Mazur as the inaugural recipient of the Minerva Award, the “Nobel for university teaching and learning.”
