Content and programs

Using a response system is a good way to engage your students in teaching, e.g. by asking them to answer questions, take a stand on statements or simply make them reflect for a while on the lesson content.

The workshop begins with a 10-15 minute introduction to the tool and some tips to think about. Then all participants work in break-out rooms for about 30-40 minutes, either in their own teaching teams, groups that are created on site or individually. The workshop manager is available for questions at all times. The workshop is rounded off with a joint discussion on best practices.

Virtual lab leader

Stefan Karlsson, ICT pedagogue at the Department of Systems and Computer Science and member of CeUL's ICT pedagogical team.
