Classroom Response Systems for Active Learning
Wesley J. Howe School of Technology Management
This seminar will demonstrate both the technology and pedagogy for using a classroom response (clicker) system in a course to actively engage students in the learning process. Peter has used classroom response technologies for the last 2 years and has received excellent feedback from the students attending his graduate management classes. In this seminar Peter will demonstrate the technology and show it can be seamlessly integrated into the class.
