Student Response Systems: Pedagogy Meets Technology

Thinking about using clickers in your class? Join us for a quick introduction to the why and how of using a student response system. We will begin with concrete ways you can use the technology to increase class discussion, increase student engagement with their peers, and assess student understanding as you are teaching. We will also discuss some best practices that many instructors have found helpful. Next, you will get an overview of Turning Technologies' newest student response system software, which allows you to poll in ANY environment or application. Lastly, you will get some hands-on experience with the software and leave ready to add interactive student response technology to your next lecture presentation.
