Creating an Interactive Learning Environment: Experience of using a Student Response System

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to briefly discuss the rationale for using Student Response Systems (SRS) and to share our experience of using this teaching technology in a training session. Our experiences support existing pedagogical research and show that SRS can be used to transform traditionally passive lecture-based classes into stimulating, active learning environments. Students demonstrate better comprehension and motivation when employing SRS compared to being taught in conventional lecture-based classes. Moreover, as teachers, SRS enable us to immediately assess student knowledge of a particular concept, and adapt the instructions we give to the learning needs of the students.
