Wednesday June 4th: Go Soapbox

This session will feature GoSoapBox, a web-based student response system (clicker tool) that can be both an active learning tool in itself or can complement other active learning strategies. This will be an interactive workshop where people who have been using GoSoapBox will talk about how it works, why it works, who it works for and things you should know if you want to use it.

The Wednesday session was recorded and can be viewed at:
