  •   4. Peer discussion (individuals asked to defend their answer), At the beginning of a lecture: have students done the required preparation?
  • Turning Point also integrates into Blackboard, the University’s Virtual Learning Environment (eLat are currently testing and trailing the Powerlink). The benefit lies in sharing student achievement data (grades are added to the Gradebook and Participant lists drawn from integration with Campus Solution) between the student response system and the VLE. (Note: Turning Point also works effectively with a whiteboard.) When writing your questions, make sure your slides are clear and easy to read. Think about the students at the back of the class - will they be able to read your questions? Changing font sizes and removing unnecessary clutter from your slides will make your lecture run more smoothly.
