This workshop covers both technical and pedagogical aspects of learning and using TurningPoint 'clickers' (also known as Student Response Systems, or SRS) in a 2-hour session. Examples of 'best clicker practices' in the classroom are included.
SRS allow instructors to integrate questions into their PowerPoint presentations; students send feedback through a handheld wireless response unit (or clicker). Used effectively, they have the potential to transform traditionally-passive large lecture classes into stimulating interactive classes.
Optional: Additional assistance is available for 30 minutes after this session.
Please note that all workshop participants MUST already be familiar with PowerPoint.
