Thanks to the availability of web-based lectures and information sources, the "flipped classroom" model is becoming increasingly popular. Students watch lectures at home at their own pace, leaving classroom time for learning activities. A lot of effort has gone into the out-of-class component, leaving the harder part―the in-class component―to the instructor. Over the past 20 years, instructors worldwide have begun to adopt peer instruction to get students to think in class. With the advent of new technology the process can be significantly improved. A new data analytics-driven audience response system, Learning Catalytics, does away with multiple-choice questions and helps instructors design better questions, manage time and process flow, and optimize discussions in the classroom.
