Description

Come learn about how to use classroom response systems (or clickers) in your teaching. The immediate feedback that clickers provide can help faculty to engage even the most reserved students, and identify areas that may need further instruction. The software provides a wide range of assessment possibilities, including identification of questions that are too easy or too difficult. Learn and share strategies for using clickers to assess, take attendance, and check understanding.
