Replacing Clickers is Top Hat.

Do you want to know what your students are really thinking? This instructor workshop provides an orientation to the TurningPoint Technologies Response System (SRS) otherwise known as "clickers". Hardware and software requirements are described for classroom implementation of this response tracking technology. Pedagogical perspectives are also addressed.

For the presentation portion of the workshop, you will participate using the clicker. You will then experiment with the PowerPoint-based application to poll responses to questions in sample formats such as yes/no, multiple choice and Likert.

PLEASE NOTE: If you would like to attend this workshop as a group at your convenience, please contact training@usask.ca.
