‘Clicker’ workshop

The Teaching Academy and the Center for Teaching and Learning will present a workshop entitled “Classroom Response Systems:  An Introduction to Teaching with Clickers” on Oct. 22 from 3–4:30 p.m. in Room 248 of the Student Learning Center.

 Derek Bruff, assistant director of the Center for Teaching at Vanderbilt University, will lead the workshop on  classroom response systems, which are often called  “personal response systems,” or “clickers.”

The system enables a teacher to pose multiple-choice questions to students in class via PowerPoint and allows the students to submit individual answers via a handheld transmitter. Software collects the answers and produces a histogram of answers for the whole class. 

A reception will follow the workshop in the SLC North Tower.
