Workshop: Use of Clicker in teaching


How can we succeed in getting students actively involved in large events? And how do you encourage the participants in seminars to think actively?
One answer to this question can be found in the use of clicker systems. Clicker systems are electronic voting systems that enable students to answer questions asked in the course at the touch of a button. Possible applications range from simple quizzes to the implementation of new teaching scenarios such as peer instruction.
