Join us for our annual kick off meet up, "Back to School with iClicker"! In this webinar, instructors will get a basic tour of iClicker, then a tour of new features with Customer Support Specialist, Natalie Dougall.
This will be followed by a discussion of best practices with iClicker, led by two of our Macmillan Learning advocate professors. We’ll hear from Justin Shaffer who will discuss best practices for writing “modern” iClicker questions, then Jennifer Ripley Stueckle for a discussion of how she manages the nuts-and-bolts of running iClicker in a 200+ student classroom.
The webinar will end with a Q&A, so come ready to see the latest and greatest of what iClicker has to offer you and your students this new academic year.
