Reforms in education and the desire to improve the quality of learning were the incentive to search for more efficient teaching strategies. In this workshop, I will describe the use of Just In Time Teaching (JITT), which is an exciting new methodology intended to engage students by using feedback from pre-class web assignments. In this process the students are more in control of the learning process and they become more active and interested learners. Even though some examples from physics are presented, this method can be successfully implemented in almost all the fields.
