While the value of Peer Instruction in computer science has been well documented, there remain challenges in adopting Peer Instruction in CS courses. We propose to use this special session (this year and in future years) as a means of crowdsourcing a collection of high quality multiple-choice questions that can be used for Peer Instruction. This session takes inspiration from the highly successful ``Nifty Assignments'' session, but differs in the granularity of the contribution. We would solicit submissions from the community that include a question along with a short explanation that provides the pedagogical content knowledge indicating why the question is a good question. In the 75-minute session, we’d try to include 10-15 short presentations of questions and then archive the questions on a web page that supports searching for questions by topic and other characteristics.
