Teaching with Technology Lunch: Fostering Student Feedback, In and Out of the Classroom

Please join us to learn and discuss how Amherst faculty use digital tools like clickers in combination with Moodle to enhance student participation and create feedback loops in synchronous and asynchronous settings.

In this Teaching with Technology lunch, Professor Kate Follette (astronomy) and Professor Chris Kingston (economics) will describe how they are using classroom response systems for real-time feedback, Moodle quizzing tools to track student understanding of course content and online forums for peer discussions. They will share 1) how these low-stakes activities help verify student comprehension, and 2) how they use the learning analytics to feed back into enhancing their teaching practices.

Bring your own Moodle and polling tips and questions as well!

Academic Technology Services will facilitate this session and provide info about alternate polling resources such as Plickers and PollEverywhere.
