Using electronic voting systems to support student learning in engineering

The Engineering Subject Centre recently held a seminar on how electronic voting systems (EVS) are being used at UK universities to support student learning in engineering. There are two freely available videocast clips on the the Engineering Subject Centre’s website (you need Flash Player 9 installed on your PC to view them). The clip featuring Prof Jim Boyle and colleagues at Strathclyde University explains the reasons for (and the results of) the successful application of EVS in the classroom and lecture theatre including how it has helped improve student retention on courses as well as student attendance at lectures.

EVSs are a great way to check student understanding…. and to keep tabs on who isn’t attending your lectures and tutorials!
