Join Emily Rimland and Alice Whiteside of Penn State University at 12:00 p.m. Central on August 10, 2011, for an ACRL OnPoint Chat to discuss the next generation of student response systems. Many instruction librarians are familiar with student response systems (a.k.a. clickers) as tools for engaging students and assessing their learning during instruction sessions. This chat will introduce the web-based tool Poll Everywhere as an example of a next generation student response system, discuss advantages of a web-based tool, and describe how to get started with it in the classroom. Come share your experiences with your peers!
ACRL OnPoint is a live series of informal text-based chat sessions that provide the opportunity to connect with colleagues and experts to discuss an issue of the day in academic and research librarianship. All ACRL OnPoint chats are free and open to the public. Sessions are unmoderated and take place in a Meebo chat room (text-based chat, no audio or visuals). Complete details and access information are available on the ACRL Website.
