TurningPoint is the University polling software (similar to Socrative, TopHat, Poll Everywhere)

This session will focus on sharing the TurningPoint student polling solution, currently utilised by over 100 Universities in the UK and Ireland and for which Queens University has a license and is free for academics and students to use.

The solutions allow for interactive engagement with your students, in a safe and secure online polling environment, that can be run within or outside of PowerPoint. The solution provides for a great degree of flexibility in choosing to run an anonymous session or the ability to track performance scores to individual students.

This will also allow instructors to record student attendance in a class.

The session is open to all interested staff and stakeholders, including course directors, Heads of School, etc. Most importantly you will get to try the polling solutions for yourself, thus please bring a smartphone, tablet or laptop along and you can respond to the live questions polled!

This aims to be a fun, interactive and engaging session; and will certainly prove popular for anyone who wishes to increase engagement with their students in the coming academic year. A lunch buffet will be provided on the day.

Lunch will be served at 1pm.
