Are you looking for ways to increase student engagement? You might be interested in using Poll Everywhere. Poll Everywhere allows you to receive immediate feedback from your students, who can respond in real-time to polls that you create. Students can respond to Poll Everywhere polls via their computers or mobile devices, thus offering the potential to transform lectures from a passive experience to a more active and engaging experience for students.
This summer, the Learning Technology Center is offering two sessions where you are welcome to come learn more about using Poll Everywhere in your course. Each session aims to introduce you to Poll Everywhere, and to help you get it set up to use in your own class.
The dates/times for the sessions are below (just click on the session to sign up):
Tuesday July 24th, 2018 at 9:00 AM in McGraw 19A
Thursday August 2nd, 2018 at 2:00 PM in McGraw 19A
If you have any questions about these sessions, please contact the UW-W Learning Technology Center.
The LTC will be exploring adaptive learning, using the Cerego adaptive learning platform, during the academic year 2018-2019. Adaptive learning offers a customizable way to structure student learning activities and assessments. In adaptive learning, content and/or assessments continuously adapt based on how a student performs, providing customizable feedback and additional learning material so the student can better understand, and master, the course material.
If you think you might be interested in using adaptive learning in your course, please consider attending an information session to find out if adaptive learning might be a good fit for you, your students, and your course!

If you have any questions about these information sessions, or adaptive learning more generally, please feel free to contact the UW-Whitewater Learning Technology Center.
