Want to break up that lecture? Looking for an opportunity to gain more interaction in your teaching? Try using "clickers"--also commonly referred to as a student response system. With clickers, you pose a question and students respond by choosing their answer choice on the clicker. You get instant results. From there, you can guide your discussion to the next topic, or provide further emphasis based on the feedback you receive.
Clickers are useful for:
- Gauging prior knowledge
- Content review
- Impromptu quizzing
- Serving as a lead-in to class discussion
