DescriptionQuestioning is an essential aspect of the learning process. With the advent of Electronic Response Systems (ERS), instructors have a greater ability to engage with large groups of students through questioning. ERS, or "clickers" as they are commonly known, allow students to respond to questions using handheld devices. Students` answers are displayed graphically allowing instructors to gain instant feedback on students` understanding of concepts and issues. Research shows that the effective use of clickers can lead to increased student engagement, improved learning, and encourage classroom interaction and participation. During this workshop, participants will be introduced to the Turning Point 5 software and learn how to use this software to create polls in their courses. Explore how the use of effective questioning with clickers can play a role in enhancing student learning.
