Dr Christopher Wiley has given a webinar on the use of electronic voting systems in higher education teaching, on Thursday 24 June 2021, 2–3pm GMT (9–10am EST), as the last of an international webinar series hosted by Turning (formerly Turning Technologies), a global leader in response technology.

Entitled ‘Creative Uses of Student Response Systems’, Dr Wiley’s one-hour webinar was broadcast to over 430 registered participants internationally, prompting a lively discussion to which moderator Kevin Herrholtz (Turning’s Vice President of Client Experience & Solutions) turned for questions periodically throughout the webinar.

Drawing on examples from his music teaching, Dr Wiley’s webinar discussed creative applications of electronic voting systems beyond the standard right-or-wrong multiple choice question, exploring advanced features of the software; pedagogies associated with electronic voting systems, and ways of combining them with other learning technologies; student feedback received on response systems, and tips for getting started.

Dr Wiley has been an International Distinguished Educator with Turning since 2012. He has spoken about electronic voting systems to many audiences both internationally and nationally (including previous webinars in 2020 and 2016), as well as publishing a report on the use of electronic voting systems in higher education teaching, available online here.
