Why oh why am I asking this?

Presented by Dr. Paul Blowers, University Distinguished Professor

Dept. of Chemical and Environmental Engineering, U of Arizona

Thursday, Sept. 14 at 1 p.m. ET

This webinar will explore the reasoning behind using different types of questions in a classroom environment that allow faculty to gain a sense of student understanding. Instructional approaches can be adjusted in real-time to correct misconceptions using formative assessment. Multiple choice questions, open-ended word clouds and numerical questions, with details about the approaches, will be discussed in an interactive format using TurningPoint. Other techniques will be briefly discussed, like the impacts of gamification, agile teaching, and peer instruction.


Scoot Scantrons, Clickers are Coming

Presented by Dr. Tamar Goulet, Professor

Dept. of Biology, U of Mississippi

Wednesday, Sept. 27 at 1 p.m. ET

Fill-in-the-blank questions on exams can better assess student knowledge as opposed to the answer recognition, elimination of answers and/or guessing which can occur in multiple-choice questions. Clickers with alphanumeric capabilities enable posing fill-in-the-blank and multiple-choice questions in a machine graded exam. Hence, clickers can make fill-in-the-blank questions a reality even in the largest of classes. This webinar will present the different types of fill-in-the-blank questions that one can ask with alphanumeric clickers and discuss how to convert an exam to a ‘clicker’ exam. 


Shake it up, Shake it down – It’s time to turn your classroom around

Presented by Sherri Wall, Instructor of Economics

UAF School of Management, U of Alaska Fairbanks

Tuesday, Oct. 3 at 1 p.m. ET

Clickers can efficiently enable you to “flip” your classroom and also institute a team-based learning environment. Freed up class time can be used to engage students in active (instead of passive) collaborative learning. Discover how to flip your class and use teams to engage in activities that are feasible because of the ease of collecting data with TurningPoint.


You are teaching, but are they learning? Using Clickers to promote the three Cs

Presented by Dr. Richard Olsen, Professor and Department Chair

Dept. of Communication Studies, U of North Carolina Wilmington

Wednesday, Nov. 8 at 1 p.m. ET

The teacher is often the hardest working person in the classroom...and that’s not good. In this webinar, Dr. Olsen will share some basic ways to use TurningPoint to help in the three areas where teachers need reinforcement most in order to create powerful learning experiences classroom culture, content mastery, and critical thinking.
