Using Clickers, Quiz, Video and enhanced student feedback

In a large class (typically 400 students) the tutors aimed to offer a more sophisticated and student-focused module, as well as making the whole learning process a rewarding and enjoyable experience for their students.

Tutors used a variety of assessment and lecture enhancements, including:

  1. Quizzes for students to use in their own time
  2. Clickers for in-lecture assessment and feedback
  3. Videos, which would aim to enhance the engagement of students
  4. Electronic feedback on Blackboard via Grademark

Benefits:

These different techniques made the teaching process an enriching experience. The use of clickers met with the approval of a significant proportion of our students and we have evidence of a widespread use of videos and quizzes. Attendance was remarkably high throughout the whole semester and impressive in revision lectures.
