  Description We invite high school and college teachers as well as research professionals to experience with us a new question sequence clicker methodology that is proven to help students enjoy lectures and experience significant learning gains. Discussion leaders have created, validated, and evaluated for learning gains 167 conceptual clicker sequences containing 500 individual questions. The workshop will start with brief discussions of the new methodology, how sequences were created and validated, results of student surveys and evaluations of learning gains. Participants will have hands-on use of clickers while answering questions and observing presentation techniques. With workshop leaders as a resource, teams of participants will then create and present their own two-question sequences. At the workshop's conclusion, participants will receive CDs containing all 167 sequences, relevant published papers, and workshop slides.
