An Inside Look: Practical Strategies for Personal Response Systems ('clickers')
  Location: KFC Courts
  Date: Tuesday, Aug.02
  Time: 5:15PM - 6:00PM
  Author: Stephanie V. Chasteen, University of Colorado - Boulder
  Co-Author(s): Katherine K. Perkins, Carl E Wieman
  Abstract: I never would have understood how clickers could be used to transform classroom teaching if I hadn't watched them in the hands of experienced instructors. Not every teacher has that opportunity. This poster will give you an overview of some of the resources we have created on clickers: Get a glimpse inside our classes at the University of Colorado with short videos, grab a copy of our instructor handbook, and come discuss any challenges you've had in implementing this powerful technique. I'll share ideas and strategies for success with clickers, from writing questions to facilitating discussion. In many ways, clickers help us support student achievement of higher order thinking skills, which are the hallmark of deeper learning.
  Footnotes: All clicker videos and resources are at, and the University of Colorado?s clicker question collection is at . This work was funded by CU?s Science Education Initiative and the National Science Foundation Grant No. 0737118.
