Assess, Inform, Engage and Promote Learning with Top Hat

Wednesday, February 28, 2018 :: 12:00-2:00 PM

Park Library | 413

Facilitated By: Brian Roberts and the CETL Tech Team, Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning

In this comprehensive and interactive session, participants will be introduced to formative and summative assessment strategies that can increase student engagement and inform and promote deeper learning opportunities through the use of a single technology. While the pedagogy will be broad reaching, the presentation and hands-on learning will revolve around the pedagogically sound implementation of the Top Hat Classroom/Audience Response System. Participants will leave with a solid understanding of how to; organize and create content, utilize the many and versatile question and interaction types, deliver content in both synchronous and asynchronous environments, assign correctness, participation, and attendance points that are easily transferred into the Blackboard Grade Center. Additionally, attendees will learn what they and their students or audience members need to do before using the Top Hat in a classroom or with a more general audience environment.

This two-hour session will be followed by an optional "Stay and Play" hour during which support staff will be available to answer questions and assist participants in creating content of their own.

Participants are encouraged to bring along a laptop, if possible. A limited number of laptops are available for use on a first come first served basis.
