This presentation brings together previous work on academic rigor (Draeger, del Prado Hill, Hunter, & Mahler, 2013) and just-in-time teaching (Draeger & Grinnell, 2011). Rigor happens when students are actively engaged in meaningful content with higher-order thinking and just-in-time teaching increases the likelihood that students will be actively engaged with assigned material (Novak et. al 1999; Scharff, 2013). The presentation offers strategies for designing higher-order-thinking prompts that can be adapted for just-in-time teaching in any course with any course management system.
