Clickers are also known as Audience Response systems and are used in a variety of ways, with aims such as increasing engagement, allowing students to answer questions in class anonymously, to check understanding of concepts, or to start group discussions.

In this session we look at examples of the use of Clickers, explore reported benefits and challenges related to some of their uses, and ensure that you know how you could get started using these systems (for example Optivote and TurningPoint) at Edge Hill University.
