Writing Engaging Questions for iClickers

Friday, April 12, 2013 from 11:00am to 12:00pm
Strand Union Building, Room 232

We see clicker technology all around campus today, and many students now have their own response units. Sure, we can use them to take attendance and provide simple in-class quizzes, but what is the next step? How do you write challenging, authentic questions that help students learn?   What kinds of questions engage students in discussion?  What makes a "good" question? 
This session is for those instructors who want to think about formulating and presenting polling questions and scenarios that provoke deeper thought and discussion.
NOTE: This workshop is designed for those instructors who are already using iClickers, or interested in formulating questions for classroom peer discussion. The basics of using clickers are not covered in this session.
