An approach to teaching where students complete work between teaching sessions, then submit it to the educator. The educator then looks through the work for patterns of understanding and misunderstanding, and alters the lesson plan accordingly.
Just-in-time teaching is intended to make teaching sessions more engaging and relevant to students’ needs. It relies on students engaging with the coursework, and on the educator having time shortly before sessions to make changes. It can create extra work if one person is teaching several groups, as the lessons for each group can diverge over time.
