ARS - A Case Study - Andrea Rippon ARS - A Case Study - Andrea Rippon

In this case study Andrea Rippon in CSED discusses how clickers were used to support a workshop at a national conference.

Type of session
EEhub Vitae Workshop, Cambridge and Engage 2010 - National Public and Community Engagement Conference, London

Audience
20-40 people

Brief description of the session
An interactive facilitated discussion, using the Clicker system to obtain people's perceptions of public and community engagement in higher education.

Notes on the way the system was used/integrated into the session
Slides with questions, asking for personal and anonymous opinions.  Responses were collated in the session itself and then discussed with the use of a facilitator.

Reflections on the experience of using audience response systems
The transparency of the process and the immediate response time gave the workshop a real edge.  However, the facilitation of the group around their response was key to the success of each event.

Reflection on the loaning process
Very easy process - straightforward, simple and very helpful and encouraging staff

Future plans or additional comments
I will definitely use Clickers again - next time in a training session I think.
