Clickers and chemistry

Dan King from our Drexel Chemistry Department has a screencast showing his use of clickers in his introductory chemistry course. He posts a multiple choice question then asks students to vote their answer and displays the distribution of choices as students click a handheld device.

If the multiple choice questions are designed well this is a great way to get insight into how students are understanding and misunderstanding the class material.

If you would like to experiment with clickers in your class, contact Dan. I think he has some he could lend out at Drexel.
