Building on his insights into the inability of students to learn effectively from lectures, Dr. Mazur introduces practical ways to engage students in peer instruction and active learning, even in large lecture classes, and demonstrates ways to engage students in problem-based peer learning in large classes.
Eric Mazur is the Balkanski Professor of Physics and Applied Physics at Harvard University and Area Dean of Applied Physics. An internationally recognized scientist and researcher, he leads a vigorous research program in optical physics and supervises one of the the largest research groups in the Physics Department at Harvard University.
