Whether using clickers or mobile options (e.g., smartphones, tablets or laptops), polling with TurningPoint 8 provides several features to enhance student comprehension and classroom engagement. Faculty will explore question structuring supported by various learning strategies: peer instruction, team-based learning, agile teaching, gamification, active learning, etc. that implement critical thinking skills to increase student comprehension. This workshop is designed for those who have used TurningPoint in the past and would like to embrace its more advanced features. Faculty should bring the laptop device from which they will be teaching, if possible, and a ResponseCard NXT or QT device.
