During this workshop, in addition to the basics and best practices of i>clicker use, we will be focusing on the array of question types that be used to not only promote discussion, but also active engagement, just-in-time teaching, and peer learning. I will be presenting real-life faculty examples of how they incorporated i>clicker into their class. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and share their ideas and experiences throughout the workshop.
