Using Electronic Response Systems in Economics Classes
Ghosh, Sucharita; Renna, Francesco
Journal of Economic Education, v40 n4 p354-365 2009
College instructors and students participated in a pilot project at the University of Akron to enhance student learning through the use of a common teaching pedagogy, peer instruction. The teaching pedagogy was supported by the use of technology, an electronic personal response system, which recorded student responses. The authors report their experiences in using this technology-enhanced teaching pedagogy and provide another example of an active and collaborative learning tool that instructors can use to move beyond "chalk and talk." Preliminary survey results from students participating in this pilot project are also reported. (Contains 3 figures, 1 table, and 9 notes.)
