Faculty Engagement Meetup: Classroom Response Systems

Fall 2016 Faculty Engagement Meet-up: Classroom Response Systems

Classroom Response Systems can energize an audience and engage students. They can help professors to instantly survey student opinions or judge student knowledge level. This enables professors to make on the spot decisions about what they are actually presenting in class!

We invite you to join our faculty panelists from History, Economics, Statistics, Chemical & Biomolecular Engineeringn, and Computer Science  for a conversation about the use of Classroom Response Systems.  We will discuss how to

  • Survey the students for their opinions on various issues, and use this to introduce the topic
  • Use the questions to test the level of student understanding of lecture concepts
  • Review key points from reading and homework assignments

Six Invited Speakers:

  • Fay A. Yarbrough,  Associate Professor, History Department
  • Robin C. Sickles, Reginald Henry Hargrove Professor of Economics, Professor of Statistics
  • John Greiner, Computer Science Lecturer
  • Rafael Verduzco, Associate Professor, Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering
  • Gary Woods, Professor in the Practice in Computer Technology
  • Rocio Doherty, Research Scientist, Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering
