FacilitatorsElspeth McCulloch (EDC), Kim Loenhart (EDC)

Looking for ways to assess students’ understanding, survey opinions on controversial topics, or engage students during a lecture? Student response systems (SRS) can help you do just that! SRS allow you to create planned or spontaneous surveys and immediately visualize student responses. They can also be used to enhance or guide discussions, track participation, facilitate live testing and guide your teaching strategy.

The EDC centrally supports the use of Poll Everywhere, a web-based polling tool that allows students to use laptops, tablets or cell phones (texting or webpages) to participate in class polls.

Come to the workshop and explore:

  • How to use Poll Everywhere
  • Best practices and implementation steps for polling
  • How other instructors use student response systems
