Clickers funding award call

Applications for proposals are invited for the integration of classroom response systems (clickers) in teaching and learning at DIT.

Classroom response systems or clickers offer a tool for engaging students in the classroom. These systems have been used in a variety of fields and at all levels of education. The teacher or lecturer poses a question to the students; the students use the clickers to transmit answers by pressing the clicker buttons. Benefits of clicker use are generally described to be:

  • Increased participation of students
  • Peer engagement of students
  • Interactive teaching
  • Enhancement of large group learning and teaching

We are calling for proposals from DIT teaching staff outlining how they will integrate clickers into the design (learning and teaching strategy) of a module. This award will grant DIT teaching staff with a set of clicker devices to use for teaching purposes on the proposed module during semester 2 of the academic year 2010-11.

To apply for funding, please complete the Application Form and return it to muireann.okeeffe by Friday, 12thNovember  2010.
