The standard lecture format is an "easy" method of teaching and learning in the large group setting where the teacher prepares and delivers content, and students listen and passively learn. This program will describe how making use of the audience response system enables students to be a driver of the learning experience rather than a passenger. Participants will have the hands-on opportunity to start familiarizing themselves with the audience response system by using it.
