I’m going to be offering a one-hour free webinar on September 27th at 11 am MST on effective use of clickers. This will be targeted to college faculty teaching all disciplines, but those of you in K12 will certainly be able to see how the messages apply to your environment. Please consider joining us! This webinar is sponsored by i>clicker, but will be focused on the pedagogical approach of using clickers, not on any particular technology.
In this interactive webinar, we’ll explore tips and ideas for incorporating clickers into your particular class. Clickers offer a powerful way to increasing student engagement and improve learning. At the University of Colorado, we have transformed our classrooms by using clickers to promote peer instruction. We’ll show research results on the most effective use of clickers, and discuss common challenges. In particular, we’ll focus on the attributes of “great” clicker questions, discuss example questions, and share ideas on facilitating effective wrap-up discussions once all the votes are in.
