Walking-in workshops

Please note that parking is limited near our facility at 301 S. Main Street, so you’re encouraged to either walk or give yourself extra time to find a spot.

Clickers: Introduction

  • Thursday, August 16  •  1 to 4 p.m.

Clickers are audience response devices which allow instructors to poll a face-to-face class in real time, displaying the results, and engaging students in their learning. Responses can be recorded and incorporated into grades in ReggieNet. You will explore the latest, cloud-based polling system from TurningPoint, the official vendor for campus. Discover how to integrate polls into your PowerPoint presentations to create interactive lectures and keep your students engaged in the course material.
