Community outside the Classroom

Using iClicker to Support Engagement in Online Activities. COVID-19 is quickly changing how we work with each other and with our students.

This webinar will not only introduce iClicker and its features, it will describe strategies for engaging with students and creating connections using online environments and activities. Walk away with a better understanding of iClicker as well as concrete ideas that you can implement quickly.
