Clickers in the Classroom: Promises and Perils.
Audience response systems (a.k.a. clickers) are a new tool that has become available to educators and are rapidly becoming a common component of the classroom. Clickers have many positive features related to pedagogy (e.g. promoting student participation in class, immediate assessment of student learning, and rapid self-assessment by students), as well as procedural aspects of course management (reduced grading time, rapid attendance monitoring, easier gradebook management). This roundtable discussion will provide a forum for individuals to discuss use of clickers in their classes, difficulties that have been encountered with clickers, and innovative applications of clicker technology. The roundtable will also provide and opportunity to discuss how different departments and institutions are handling the issue of students needing to purchase multiple clicker models for different courses. There will also be a demonstration of and opportunities to experiment with a sample clicker system.
