Engaging learners through interaction: Using handheld clickers in the classroom:

This case study looks at the practice of Dr Barbara Gabrys, Lecturer in Advanced Polymers, Department of Materials, Oxford University.  Since Hilary Term 2010, Dr. Gabrys has employed ‘clickers’ (Audience Response Systems) in her class-room based lectures in order to make her teaching more interactive for the students, to address different learning styles, and to improve comprehension of the difficult concepts presented in courses on polymers. Students’ feedback has been highly positive, and Dr. Gabrys has observed that facilitating peer-scaffolding through use of clickers increased the number of correct answers to revision questions.
