Clickers: Classroom Response Systems in Action
Come learn how to use clickers (classroom response systems) in your classroom. Tammy Goulet is an Associate Professor, Biology at the University of Mississippi and in 2010 was awarded a National Science Foundation grant to investigate the learning outcomes of her Class Generated Community Clicker Cases approach. The approach is an innovative way to integrate and capitalize on the strengths of both clickers and case studies. This session will include a demonstration of how TurningPoint polling software can be used to poll in PowerPoint or any other application. Workshop participants will be exposed to the applications of clickers for pre-and post-immediate assessment, quizzes, feedback, data gathering and audience polling of opinions.
