MAKE CLICKERS WORK FOR YOU: ENGAGING STUDENTS WITH GREAT QUESTIONS

In this interactive workshop, we’ll explore tips and ideas for incorporating clickers into your particular class. Clickers offer a powerful way to teach science by increasing student engagement -- we have transformed our classrooms by using clickers to promote peer instruction. We’ll show research results on the most effective use of clickers, discuss common challenges, and share tips on getting students to productively argue and reason through the questions.  We’ll discuss example questions, and practice writing questions in our content area and help each other improve them.

RECOMMENDED: Attend with another faculty from your department, if possible, to facilitate brainstorming of questions in your field. This workshop is targeted to Arts & Sciences and Engineering faculty.

Presented by Stephanie Chasteen, Science Teaching Fellow, Physics
