Faculty of Education seminar by Dan Robinson, Professor of Educational Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin.
Dan will discuss findings from several studies from a recent line of research that has examined using clickers, or CRS, in higher education classrooms. He will also discuss ways in which he and his colleagues have extended Roddy Roediger’s team’s work on the testing effect, or test-enhanced learning, to classroom conditions where students take tests in collaborative groups or teams.
