Presented by Greg Kitzmiller, Indiana University Kelley School of Business
Co-sponsored with the Center for Faculty Excellence
October 7 | 1 p.m. | Stoddard Hall 307
Why would faculty go to the trouble of using “clickers” or response devices and why should students want them used? Clickers take time, require an extra purchase by students, and faculty have to learn more tech. Despite all that, Greg Kitzmiller has been using them for years and wouldn’t teach a large class without them. This session will help you decide if you should use clickers and showcase good strategies for using them.
