Title: CLICKER TECHNOLOGY: Clicking towards an ACTIVE
Date: Thursday, April 13, 2006
Time: 3:30 p.m.
Place: Math & Stats Lounge (CW 307.20)
Imagine a teaching environment where EVERY student can be "heard." This active
learning environment exists with clicker technology. A clicker is a remote control device
with buttons (similar to a television remote). Students are able to answer objective and
subjective closed-ended questions (multiple-choice, true/false, yes/no). With the
generation of reports, the instructor immediately knows how students are responding to
questions. An instructor no longer has to ask an open-ended question and wait for a
response. The goal of this talk will be to introduce the audience to clicker technology.
More importantly, I would like a discussion to follow regarding the possible uses of this
technology in the Mathematics and Statistics Department at the University of Regina.
