Professional Development Opportunities for December - SynchronEyes (Classroom Management Software) and Turning Point Clickers (Student Response System)!


On-campus, easy to attend professional development sessions! No registration is required – just show up! MCC Faculty, Staff and Administration are invited to the following Brown Bag Lunch Sessions sponsored by Educational Technology Services. Sessions take place during COLLEGE HOUR (12-12:50pm).

SYNCHRONEYES
CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE
MONDAY, DECEMBER 4 in ROOM 11-109
Are your students surfing the web, chatting online or working on a different class while you are lecturing in one of MCC’s computer classrooms? Would you like to be able to work with a student from the instructor station and be able to project the student’s work on the screen in front of the class or to each student’s computer to follow along? SynchronEyes classroom management software is now available to give you the power to guide learning and help you manage the computers in the classroom. Come to this Brown Bag Session to see a demonstration of SynchronEyes! Facilitated by Jeff Thompson, ETS Instructional Technologies.

TURNING POINT CLICKERS
STUDENT RESPONSE SYSTEM
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 6 in ROOM 11-109
Last month we brought you a special demonstration showing both InterWrite PRS and the Turning Point student response system of classroom clickers. While faculty were able to see a general comparison between those two types, more time with each system is desired. This Brown Bag Session will allow more in-depth time with the Turning Point clicker. Bring your own PowerPoint show on a flash drive, and see how Turning Point converts it for use with its clicker system. We will also cover information about costs and any general questions you may have about the Turning Point system. Facilitated by Paul Tracy, ETS Instructional Technologies.
