About the Pilot
In response to faculty feedback, UTech TLT is launching a semester-long audience response pilot for undergraduate CWRU courses in Spring 2024. In this pilot, the audience response system Poll Everywhere will be available for participating faculty to use at no cost for their undergraduate courses. The goal of the pilot is to gauge faculty interest in audience response tools in the classroom. Please keep in mind that this pilot is for undergraduate courses only.
Faculty who are interested in using Poll Everywhere in their Spring 2024 undergraduate courses should fill out this Google form indicating which class(es) they would like to enhance with an audience response tool. Faculty who participate in the pilot will be required to complete a couple of surveys throughout the spring semester providing feedback about their experience with the tool.
