An Introduction to TurningPoint web: student polling made easy!

This session will focus on sharing the TurningPoint student polling solution, currently utilised by over 100 Universities in the UK and Ireland. 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.

The session is open to all interested staff and stakeholders, including course directors, Heads of School, lecturers and administrative staff. 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! Laptops will also be provided.

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.

Prerequisites: 

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).
