We discuss innovative pedagogy in the university environment with Iannis Aliferis, physicist and teacher-researcher at Polytech Nice Sophia.
In order to make his teaching more interactive and lead his students to a better understanding of the concepts underlying the theory, Iannis applies strategies often present at the primary level such as the flipped classroom and peer learning. He emphasizes that changing the educational model implies using ideas that are validated by research and adapting them to one's context. Rather than talking about innovation, he talks about evidence-based teaching.
According to Iannis, it is important to take small doses and give yourself the time to live this transition. He also seeks to inspire his colleagues and create an educational movement within his community.
