Workshop topics include course management techniques, effective classroom presentations, increasing student participation and collaboration.
iClicker personal response systems (PRS) are handheld radio-frequency response devices that allow anonymous and specific polling and question-and-answer sessions in the classroom. The device transmits student responses to a receiver attached to an instructor's computer. The results can be displayed to the students or kept private.
