i>clicker Training for Faculty

AGC recently approved a student response system (“clicker”) standard for GRCC: the i>clicker 2. This means that any faculty member that would like to use clickers in their classroom will be given the hardware, training, and support they need to utilize this technology. It will also guarantee that our students will not have to buy more than one clicker during their time at GRCC.

The Center for Teaching Excellence is pleased to offer this professional development opportunity to faculty:

Event: i>clicker Training

Date and Time: Tuesday, June 5 12:30 – 2:00 PM

After completing this training session, you will be able to:

  • Understand system requirements and no-installation hardware setup for the i>clicker2 remote.
  • Use settings and preferences, including awarding participation and performance points for responses and customizing the tool bar for your specific class needs.
  • Instruct students on answering numeric/alphanumeric questions.
  • Register clickers to students/audience members as needed.
  • Use the i>clicker software to poll your audience with ANY application.
