Student responses in class
CTL Conversation Friday, Feb 26 10-11am AH 1112
Asking students to answer formal or informal quiz questions can be a great way to
break up lectures or punctuate discussions. Handheld clickers are an easy way to gather
responses to such questions but for various reasons, some faculty hesitate to adopt clicker technology. In this Conversation event, Arlette Baljon from the Department of Physics,
will share her experience with Plickers, an alternative to clickers that has many of the advantages of clickers without requiring
students to use their devices themselves. Then we’ll open up the floor to hear what
methods other faculty have found effective for collecting student responses. Please
come join the discussion and share your own ideas! Coffee and snacks provided. Registration required.
* This event is part of the “Fill in the Blank” series where faculty can ask their
colleagues“How do you _____?” You pick the topic and the time/date, we provide the
space and snacks for an informal discussion of teaching topics.
