Welcome back to a new and promising academic year , at DIT Student numbers are up so this is definitely a year to begin using clickers for large group teaching to enhance feedback and engagement!
At DIT we have a number of specific projects that will use clickers over the next year and so we will facilitate an induction workshop on using clickers will take place on Thursday September 15th from 12pm here in DIT 14 Upper Mount St.
Lecturer Barry Ryan will also give a 30 min demo on how he has used clickers over the past academic year. Also as some of you are continue to use clickers from last year this session will be valuable to share experiences and get questions answered
A trainer (Paul Jenner) from the Turning technologies company will also come along and answer questions and also provide further training from 1.30pm
The schedule for the workshop will be as follows
12:00 pm – Introduction to clickers, (tea coffee on arrival)
12:30 pm Barry Ryan Julie Dunne, using clickers in labs
13:00 Lunch (Discussions and Questions)
From 13:30 pm Turning point workshop, question and answers
At various points in the coming year I will organise lunchtime workshops on different campuses to support the clickers.
I look forward to seeing you on the 15th
