Software-Based Student Response Systems: An Interdisciplinary Initiative
Fischer, Carol M.; Hoffman, Michael S.; Casey, Nancy C.; Cox, Maureen P.
Journal of Learning in Higher Education, v11 n2 p33-39 Fall 2015
Colleagues from information technology and three academic departments collaborated on an instructional technology initiative to employ student response systems in classes in mathematics, accounting and education. The instructors assessed the viability of using software-based systems to enable students to use their own devices (cell phones, tablets, laptop computers) rather than relying on dedicated devices needed with a hardware-based student response system. The instructors also evaluated student reaction to the technology and share their perceptions about the pedagogy, noting that all three felt there was a positive effect on student engagement. Finally, the instructors reflect on the long-term impact of the initiative on their teaching.
