Clickers in the Classroom
A Student Response System (clickers) is a tool that assists faculty in generating student engagement, quickly completing quizzes, in taking role, etc. The University of Colorado Denver supports i>clicker. Students purchase their clicker at the Auraria bookstore. Clickers should be ordered at the same time faculty place book orders. The i>clicker company provides a free receiver to faculty with classes with more than 100 enrolled students. The Center for Faculty Development has a small number of receiver units to loan on a semester-by-semester basis.

Tips for Successful Clicker Use
This great tool not only describes what to do to make the use of clickers in your classroom a success – it also describes what not to do. Written by Doug Duncan of the University of Colorado-Boulder after many years of clicker use at CU-Boulder (where over 17,000 clickers are in use today), it includes recommendations from members of the University of British Columbia Carl Wieman Science Education Initiative.
