This is the FINAL TLTC FRIENDS Announcement
Thank you for following the TLTC Friends announcements. We wanted to send you one last message from this list to tell you about some changes in the way we will support your instructional technology use in the future. This past August, TLTC became part of the new Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning (CITL), joining with colleagues from other instructional support units across the IU Bloomington campus. As part of this merging of services, announcements about instructional technology workshops and support will now come through the monthly CITL newsletter, so please look for e-mail coming from CITL near the start of each month. If you have not yet received a CITL newsletter and would like to subscribe, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about CITL and how it can support your teaching, see http://citl.indiana.edu.

Successful clicker use depends on having clicker questions that match your instructional goals, such as promoting discussion, uncovering misconceptions, assessing conceptual understanding, or making students aware of others' views. In this hands-on workshop you will learn some best practices for writing questions and then apply those ideas by writing and revising your own questions with the help of CITL staff and your peers. This workshop is designed for instructors who are currently using or who are familiar with using clickers in their classes.
