Suggestions for Teaching with Clickers

June 18, 2010

Writing for the “Tomorrow’s Professor” blog, Rick Reis (Stanford) provides a useful book chapter summary, titled Sixteen Suggestions for Teaching with Classroom Response Systems. The article is based on material in Derek Bruff’s 2009 book, Teaching with Classroom Response Systems: Creating Active Learning Environments.

Two of the strengths of clickers are that they let faculty rapidly collect student feedback and they let students respond anonymously. Among other tips, Bruff encourages clicker-users to use a variety of types of questions, do more with clickers than give quizzes and take attendance, give students ample time to think about answers, and share notes with colleagues who also use clickers.
