The future of Classroom Response Systems in the UC System - Cross-campus panel and discussion


Classroom Response Systems (CRS, aka “Clickers”) have been, for many years, used in courses across UC campuses for engagement and assessment purposes, to the degree that some instructors consider them indispensable. With advances in CRS technology that provide new features, as well as enable students to participate using their own devices (phones, tablets, laptops), many UC campuses have been investigating a variety of new systems; some campuses have formally adopted a new system, while others are at an earlier point in their journey.  This panel is to discuss where we each are now, where we would like to be, and any issues or road-blocks which could impede our advancement. We can also begin a conversation about what possible cost-saving options there might be if campuses join together. While the first half of this presentation is status updates by individual campuses, the second part is an interactive discussion. Feel free to participate or listen.
