Just in Time Teaching (JiTT) is an instructional approach developed initially to engage nontraditional and non-major students in their introductory physics courses. Some level of control of the learning process shifts to the students. The approach promotes interaction between students and faculty, and facilitates a number of desirable learner traits. Typically, JiTT emphasizes preparation before class, communication skills, and conceptual understanding. Support for JiTT is widespread by

Adopters of JiTT within the engineering education community are very few, however, with no engineering technology instructors registered as JiTT practitioners as of June 2004 1,2 .
