USING CLICKERS TO ENGAGE STUDENTS


Stephanie Chasteen, Associate Director, Science Education Initiative

Why use clickers?  And how can you use them effectively to promote student learning?  This introductory workshop will give you a brief overview of clickers and peer instruction as a pedagogical tool.  We will discuss why and how clickers can be an effective tool for generating student engagement and discussion, with emphasis on results from education research.  We will discuss example questions, common challenges, share tips on getting student to argue and reason productively about the questions, and discuss examples of less-effective use. For those who want more detail, a detailed workshop is offered later the same day from 2:30-4:30 pm.

The Technology Enhanced Learning Forums are designed and provided for our instructional faculty members. Participation in FTEP Workshops and Symposia are open to Professors, Associate Professors, Assistant Professors, Instructors, Senior Instructors and Scholars-in-Residence, as per your official HR Job Class. If you plan to participate in a forum conducted by presenters whose college is different from your own, please be prepared to adapt the recommended teaching tools to the needs of your own discipline.
