Loyola at a Glance
Susan Brower presents on growing use of 'clickers' in Chicago
November 9, 2012
Susan Brower, associate professor and media services coordinator in the J. Edgar and Louise S. Monroe Library at Loyola University New Orleans, presented “Choosing, Growing and Sustaining Clickers on Campus” at the Clickers Conference 2012 Oct. 25 in Chicago, Ill.
The iClicker student response system, first implemented at Loyola in Fall 2009, has grown from 10 faculty users to more than 50, and its use continues to grow. Students purchase clickers to use in class from the bookstore when they purchase their books for a course. Professors across campus can use clickers during class to help engage the students, deepen classroom discussion, and review material, as well as for attendance, quizzes and tests. Group and individual data can be saved. The iClicker system integrates easily with the Blackboard course management system.
Brower spoke about the process of faculty training, equipment implementation and faculty support she has developed and refined over the past three years.
