Using Clickers for Creating Effective Questions
Interested in using clickers in Winter 2014? This workshop introduces pedagogical and technological components that will help instructors develop in-class activities that engage students and provide them with opportunities to think critically and test their understanding about what they are learning. We will focus on learning-centered question design, question types, strategies for using them in class, and hands-on activities using the TurningPoint software and the clickers. We will also provide information about follow-up resources at McGill and relevant resources and best practices from the literature.
At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:
- Design effective questions that are linked to your learning goals.
- Develop in-class activities to enhance student engagement.
- Create questions using TurningPoint software.
- Run "clicker" sessions.
