Dan Daugaard decided to use Socrative with a limited number of questions. He also used both multiple choice and text responses. He trialled the tool in three different classes of 40+ students: two in Sydney and one in Melbourne.
Dan utilised the tool in a number of different ways which illustrate the inventiveness and creativity that is possible in academic teaching and the flexibility of in-class polling tools.
Dan Daugaard is a Fellow in the Applied Finance Centre at Macquarie University. He’s not afraid of trying something new to help his students engage and understand the complex information that they grapple with in lectures.
I had the good fortune of working with Deidre Seeto (Educational Developer) and Dan in the first half of this year, on a Faculty Partnership Project that aimed to facilitate greater student participation and engagement in the postgraduate unit ECFS865 Investments.
