A personal response system uses hand-held devices (also known as "clickers") that can be used in the technology classrooms to receive immediate feedback from an entire class during live lectures. In this workshop, faculty become familiar with the software and explore best practices for optimum results.

NOTE:  Faculty members who are interested in using "clickers" in technology classrooms need to coordinate with Classroom Central in advance of the semester to assure the technology will be available.


At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • locate resources for help for themselves and their students
  • create PowerPoint slides with a sampling of questions
  • poll students from PowerPoint
  • integrate rosters and results with Blackboard

Faculty members who teach on campus and want to utilize fast feedback during the class to measure the level of understanding in real time can take advantage of the "clicker" system and related software supported by the university.
