A University of Ottawa professor reveals his secrets to getting 99% class participation and improving learning outcomes in the process.

When Dr. Colin Montpetit, Assistant Professor of Science Education, decided to incorporate a student engagement solution into his large enrollment class with 3 sections of 200 students in each, the results were nothing short of remarkable. In his own words, his course became an “active learning zone” as student participation and classroom interaction soared.

Join Dr. Montpetit for this complimentary Webinar to hear his personal experience, research findings and tried and true teaching tips on:

How to make the most of student engagement systems and student devices.
Why increased student participation and engagement translates into student success.
How adding interactive questions to your digital presentations gives you real-time insight into student comprehension.

Who Should Attend: All Faculty especially those interested in using lecture capture software, and those that are interested in using technology to teach are highly encouraged to attend.
