Clickers and Peer Instruction: A powerful way to improve student engagement and learning – but only if you do it right

Monday, October 5, 2009


Douglas Duncan shares his strategies and proven experiences in effectively using clickers in the classroom. Duncan has been using clickers at the University of Colorado, where over 17,000 clickers are in use. He’ll share data gathered during the past few years that have yielded a number of effective pedagogical strategies in their implementation and deployment. Strategies that led to successful use, and mistakes that led to failure, have been found to be very repeatable; these will be discussed. Results from a PhD thesis in sociology examining how the culture of a classroom changes when the instruction becomes more interactive, and student opinions about this, will be highlighted.

This free seminar is an exclusive benefit for ELI member organizations—you and any others at your institution are invited to attend. Virtual seating is limited, however, and registration is required.
