This is just a quick post to record a staff training session I did today with a Psychology lecturer. We gave a demonstration of how to use TurningPoint voting devices to conduct a quiz in Psychology lesson. In the Psychology team meeting with mainly lecturers we got them to answer the questions using the ‘clickers’.
The great thing about TurningPoint is that they write the questions in Powerpoint, which most of the lecturers are familiar with already. I did some general questions about the college and then Ros, the Psychology lecturers did some specific questions about Psychology.
The team seemed to be very pleased with the experience (63% strongly agreed and 27% agreed that it was an enjoyable experience doing the quiz). Hopefully this will be a springboard for the lecturers to use the ‘clickers’ in the lesson and I must try and repeat it in other departmental meetings!
