In this workshop, faculty will learn strategies for increasing student engagement and improving student learning by integrating active-learning activities with student-response systems, or “clickers.” Workshop participants will discuss strategies for writing effective clicker questions as well as best practices for combining clicker-questions with other methods, such as lecture, discussions, and group work.
Topics will also include:
Identifying the benefits of using clickers during active-learning activities
Writing questions for specific purposes
Planning the sequence and timing of clicker questions within a class session
Integrating discussion of student responses
Presenters: Beth Fisher, PhD, Director of Academic Services, The Teaching Center and Lecture in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies; Shawn Nordell, PhD, Senior Associate Director, The Teaching Center
