\noindent
Since its introduction 15 years ago, Peer Instruction has been broadly adopted, particularly in science teaching, and
a number of studies of its effect across disciplines and across a range of institutions have been published. The goal of Peer Instruction is to make the students think critically about the material and participate actively in the learning process. To accomplish this goal the instructor periodically breaks up the class by asking a short conceptual question (a ConcepTest') that challenges the students to put the material at hand into practice. The students respond using a show of hands, flashcards, or infrared clickers'.

\newline 2. Introduction of technology-mediated enhancements and assessment of their impact on pedagogy
\newline 3. Commoditizing and dissemination of successful techniques

-We will focus on physics content, where a broad research base on existing techniques and research-based content for Peer Instruction using clickers are readily available. We will work with undergraduate students in introductory algebra- and calculus-based physics courses at a spectrum of institutions.

{\bf Intellectual Merit:}
Peer Instruction has proven successful in outcome-oriented evaluations; in the first phase,
-this project will add process-oriented data to the research body. In the second phase, the project will extend and enhance the Peer Instruction technique through advanced technological means, and assess the impact of these
-modifications, both in outcome and process.
