Episode 2 – An Interview with Steve Buckles

Posted by on Friday, December 28, 2007 in Podcast.

In this episode, we feature excerpts from an interview with Stephen Buckles, Senior Lecturer in Economics here at Vanderbilt. In this interview, Steve describes his use of a classroom response system in his large undergraduate economics courses. This system allows Steve to pose multiple-choice questions to his students during class and his students to submit their answers to these questions using small handheld devices called clickers. The system them displays on an overhead screen a bar chart showing the distribution of student responses. Steve uses this system to engage his students actively during class .
