Sixteen Suggestions for Teaching with Clickers
An excerpt from CFT assistant director Derek Bruff’s book, Teaching with Classroom Response Systems: Creating Active Learning Environments, was published on the Tomorrow’s Professor listserv this week. In the excerpt, Derek shares sixteen tips for teaching with clickers, including this one:
“7. Have students respond to clicker questions several time throughout a class session. Although questions at the beginning and end of class sessions can serve particular and useful functions, questions asked every ten to fifteen minutes can help focus students’ attention throughout the class.”
The Tomorrow’s Professor listserv (from Richard Reis and the Stanford University Center for Teaching and Learning) is a great resource for faculty and graduate students. It runs stories on teaching, research, and the academy. You can subscribe via email or read postings on the TP blog.
