IN-CLASS FEEDBACK

Whether a precept, seminar, or lecture, class sessions are enhanced by communication and the sharing of information. In-class feedback can take the form of a show of hands, an online poll, wordcloud, or an audience response system (‘clickers’). The goal is the same: to encourage two-way communication, spur discussion, and to provide insight into student understanding.
