It’s clear from instructor feedback over the past year: there are too many technology options for class and there’s too little time to implement them. We totally agree. Instructors need - now, more than ever - technology that is simple to start up, tools that are flexible to work across course formats, and solutions that are actually effective for students.
To that end, Dr. Matt Evans, active learning veteran and Professor of Physics at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, has shared his criteria in selecting technology that helps him accomplish his course goals and do so efficiently. Matt specifically covered how he has used active learning software, iClicker, to meet a number of different needs in and out of the classroom.
