This workshop covers both technical and pedagogical aspects of learning and using TurningPoint clickers (also known as student response systems, or SRS) in a 2-hour session. Examples of ‘best clicker practices’ in the classroom are included.
SRS allow instructors to integrate questions into their PowerPoint presentations. Students respomd using a mobile device (wireless-equipped laptop, notebook, netbook, tablet, smart phone…) or a handheld dedicated clicker. Used effectively, these devices can transform traditionally passive lecture classes into more stimulating interactive classes. Here are some workshop options/opportunties:
