Faculty and staff interested in getting the most out of in-class use of student response systems (clickers) are invited to register for a clicker pedagogy workshop to be held May 3 at Mann Assembly Room in Paterno Library from 12:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. The main speaker at the workshop will be Professor Mary Beth Kramer, instructor of chemistry at the University of Delaware, who utilizes clickers in both large and small classes. This workshop is ideal for both first-time clicker users as well as experienced users. Lunch will be provided.
Workshop topics will include:
- Writing good clicker questions
- Utilizing “peer instruction” and other types of questions
- Best practices when implementing clickers
- Assigning different kinds of points for answering questions
