We are developing and assessing resource material for Peer Instruction in Quantum Mechanics for undergraduate courses.
The resource material includes the ``ConcepTests" for assessment with continuous feedback to the students, standarized assessment tools, reflective questions and the material for Just-In-Time Teaching (JITT) for quantum mechanics courses. The following features of the Peer Instruction tools make them particularly suited for the challenging task of teaching quantum physics:
The peer-instruction tools give students an opportunity to reflect upon their own learning and take advantage of both their own strengths and those of their peers.
The development of the peer-instruction resource materials goes through a cyclical iterative process that includes research on student difficulties in learning a particular physics concept, followed by the development, evaluation and refinement of the material. f you are teaching quantum mechanics and would like to implement the peer instruction tools in your class and provide us feedback, please send an email to email@example.com
