  4. 4. JiTT a Web Based Teaching Approach Just-in-Time Teaching (JiTT for short) is a teaching and learning strategy based on the interaction between web-based study assignments and an active learner classroom. Students respond electronically to carefully constructed web-based assignments which are due shortly before class, and the instructor reads the student submissions "just-in-time" to adjust the classroom lesson to suit the students' needs.

  6. 6. Using JiTT in ILM’s - Rapid Deployment eLearning • Helps teacher find out students learning needs before F2F • Uses today’s elearning technologies to package and deliver content • Interactive Learning Modules (ILMs) also deliver formative assessment interactions • Just in time for teacher to adjust what and how they teach F2F • Manages and offsets the content load of the F2F - enables quality time for interactive lecturing Friday, 13 September 13
  7. 7. Anupolsteraphobia • Interactive Learning Modules are curriculum and can manage the content load but they enable so much more • Assessment & feedback first - content second • Free up valuable F2F time for interactive learning “The fear of not covering the material ... Anupolsteraphobia cannot be cured but it can be controlled.” Stan Brimberg Friday, 13 September 13

He introduced this pedagogical approach to colleagues in the Faculty of ECMS •Assoc. Prof. Jaksa is using the pedagogy and recently got 80% positive feedback from his students that the ILMs helped learning. In Jul 2011 Mark and some colleagues won an ALTC grant of $199,000 to develop the concept further.
