From a student:
"They were a really fun and refreshing way to learn and participate in such a big lecture."
Faculty Selection and Development
getting faculty prepared
Once the grant proposal was accepted, a request for proposals (RFP) was developed in order to select faculty participants for the grant project. The RFP was distributed to chairs and department heads as well as faculty who had shown previous interest.
Request for Proposals
UWM selected 10 faculty to participate, UWEC selected 6 faculty to participate, UWO selected 5 faculty to participate, and UWW selected 6 faculty to participate. Faculty were selected across disciplines, course level, and class size in order to gain a better understanding of the impact of the technology on courses with differing characteristics.

The grant participants from each campus attended a workshop that was developed in order to prepare them to effectively integrate clickers into their classroom. The workshop includes thought provoking questions on course design that were to be completed before the day of the workshop, breakout sessions on developing uses of clickers, a session on possible challenges and concerns, a session on considerations in integration, and a session on assessment. The day of the workshop we also had a couple faculty members demonstrate previous use of clickers and discuss their experiences.
Clicker Faculty Development Workshop
In addition to the summer faculty development workshops, many of the campuses held workshops and provided one-on-one consulting to their instructors.
