Designed for:

Staff interested in using the Personal Response System to promote interactivity in their classes.


The Personal Response System may be used in a number of different ways within classes to promote interactivity in teaching and learning.  Activities that can be facilitated include: initiating discussion, checking understanding and provision of formative feedback, contingent teaching, peer teaching/discussion, assessment, community building, data collection and gathering of module feedback. The workshop will examine how to use these activities appropriately and effectively with your students. Examples of how PRS is being used in Queen’s and some other universities will also be discussed.


Some previous experience with PowerPoint is necessary for attendance at the workshop.


Registration is via Queen’s Online (In the navigation under My Services, select Other, then Training Courses).
