Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Participants will be able to identify at least two strategies, tools, or methods to provide personalized feedback to students in their classroom or setting. The format for the hour-long presentation is ‘interactive lecture.’ As presenters, we will be utilizing a variety of technologically-based tools to help tailor the presentation to the audience including Plickers,, Mentimeter and Google Slides Audience Questions. These serve to 1, guide the presentation content, 2, check for audience understanding and 3, model best-practice use of the tools we are presenting to participants. Prior to the end of the session, we will provide our participants with the results of the real-time checks for understanding we used to determine how well we as presenters met the objectives outlined for this session.
