An Optivote brand Clicker handsetThe next session in the Emerging Technologies staff development series will be an overview of using Clicker systems (such as TurningPoint and Optivote) with your students.

Clickers are also known as Audience Response systems and are used in a variety of ways, with aims such as increasing engagement, allowing students to answer questions in class anonymously, to check understanding of concepts, or to start group discussions.

The session will run on Wednesday 2nd May between 1 and 2pm, in the LINC Development Room (2nd floor of the LINC building) and you can book by going to the session page on the staff development pages.

We’ll look at what Clickers are, the reasons they are used in Higher Education, and how you can use them with your students.
