UNH Academic Technology supports faculty using the i>clicker student response system. “Clickers” are used in classes of all sizes to increase student engagement, facilitate discussion, and provide immediate feedback on students’ understanding of course content.
A number of faculty training sessions have been set up in December and January. These hands-on sessions are designed for current users and for those new to using clickers in the classroom. Training is mandatory for all new i>clicker users, register to attend an upcoming training here: https://idctraining.unh.edu/apps/ssr?action=course&id=161
i>clicker base stations (receivers) are installed in registrar-controlled classrooms. The training will explain how to configure the software to work with the deployed base stations.
The i>clicker remotes are available for purchase at the UNH Book Store and the Durham Book Exchange for $42.50 through AY 2013/2014. While this cost is more expensive than eInstruction CPS, there are no registration fees each semester so the total overall cost is lower. If students already own an eInstruction CPS clicker, there will be a $10.00 rebate available to help offset the cost of switching to a new device. Please reference this website in your course materials to help facilitate the student rebate: http://iclicker.com/customers/education/UNH/.
