USING CLICKERS IN THE CLASSROOM
Steven Pollock, President’s Teaching Scholar and Professor of Physics
Stefanie Mollborn, Professor of Sociology
Stephanie Chasteen, Science Teaching Fellow, Physics
Clickers are an increasingly popular classroom communication tool, but what
is the research base behind them? What classroom techniques surrounding the
clicker technology help facilitate a productive learning environment? And,
how does one go about writing clicker questions that are useful, and support
a student-centered class? In this interactive workshop aimed for all disciplines,
we will discuss some of the studies and theoretical underpinnings behind
"peer instruction" (the pedagogy of clickers), practice and brainstorm appropriate
(university classroom) uses of clickers, and address your questions (and/or
concerns) about incorporating clickers into your class.
RECOMMENDED: Attend with another faculty from your department, if possible,
to facilitate brainstorming of questions in your field.
