Abstract

Learning Catalytics is an advanced cloud-based student response system that can be used in lieu of clickers, such as TurningPoint and eInstruction clickers. Instructors push out questions to students via the web and students use their own web-enabled device, such as laptop, iphone, ipad, itouch, Kindle fire, Nook, etc., to answer the questions. This session will share innovative and effective ways to utilize Learning Catalytics to engage students in the classrooms: how to design open-ended questions, such as graphical, numerical, algebraic, and textual questions, to engage students; how to place students into groups for peer discussions based on students’ responses to questions; and how to use Learning Catalytics to deliver self-paced and team-based assessments. Pros and cons of Learning Catalytics compared to other student response systems, such as TurningPoint and eInstruction, will also be discussed.
