Faculty Teaching Excellence Program




Doug Duncan , Professor of Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences

Clickers are handheld electronic devices that many faculty use to solicit feedback from students during lectures. The professor asks a question, which each student answers with a clicker, allowing instantaneous and anonymous responses. Although not magical, clickers promote good pedagogy. They do not, however, guarantee it. Like knives, this powerful technology can be used well or badly. Professor Duncan will demonstrate some good and bad uses of clickers, employing the new radio frequency i-Clickers.
