Join us for an introduction to the new i>clicker2 technology, coming next fall to the UO. i>clicker2 enables an instructor to receive instant student feedback in large lecture-hall classes and smaller seminar settings. The new version of clickers allows students to enter numeric and alphanumeric (short answer) responses, as well as responses to standard multiple choice questions—all of which give instructors polling options to create dynamic learning experiences for students. Mike Urbancic from the Department of Economics will demonstrate his use of i>clicker2 technology in the classroom, and we will have hands-on time with these devices.
