Abstract:In a small computer science lab, the distraction of the Internet can interfere with student engagement. I examined if clicker devices, which have shown some success in large lecture classes, can be similarly applied to a small lab. In addition, I used descriptive analysis to describe how teaching assistants used clickers, and what student preferences were for clicker use. I found that student attendance rates improved, and they reported attending class, learning more, and being more engaged due to clicker use. Teaching assistants were identified as having used the devices to review skills, review application documentation, encourage classroom discussion, and to guide their own teaching. While this study has a narrow focus, this information can be used to develop a set of “best practices” in using clickers in a small lab setting, and adds to the literature by providing data about clicker usage in a small lab in higher education.
