Introduction to Clickers

No registrations accepted. The date of this event has passed.

Open only to: UWM Faculty, Teaching Academic Staff, and Teaching Assistants

Date: Thursday, May 09, 2013
Time: 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Location: Golda Meir Libraries, E177

Presenter: Gerry Bergtrom

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.
