This fall, a group of selected faculty members met as a learning community where they shared their best practices and techniques using our student response system iClicker Reef. The community was sponsored and facilitated by OIT’s Learning Technology Solutions, with a grant from McMillan Education.

The group will share how they utilize iClicker Reef in the classroom, including how to effectively engage and poll students in the class, track student understanding, address misconceptions, encourage attendance and give every student a voice.
