  • 2. Goal • The goal of the book is to entice professors to: – Use I>clickers by showing them the benefits – To show them how to actually use the I>clickers – To show them appropriate/suggested classroom uses.
  • 3. Overview The Terrific Tech Trainers decided to create a book that will help university faculty incorporate the use of I>Clickers in their classroom. We found the Understanding by Design UBD approach interesting for our Bookbuilder project because we wanted our target learners to embrace the ‘why’ of why should they should use clickers in their university teaching.
  • 4. Why UBD? • Key Points – Thinking about learners asking ‘Why do we need to learn this?’, ‘Why do we need to know this?’, 'Why does this matter to me?' – Moving beyond knowledge to understanding – Teaching learners how to use the information – Teaching learners how to apply the information, not just to know it – What is the enduring question – what is it we really want learners to know and be able to do – Having the end in mind when designing the instruction – Focus is on performance based assessment
