An audience response system (sometimes referred to as a clicker system) can help turn a library instruction presentation into an interactive learning experience. In this session, three libraries will discuss how they've implemented an audience response system into their instruction program as well as for other uses in their libraries such as presentations to administrators and faculty workshops. You will also get to experience an audience response system as a participant and then learn how to create your own audience response presentation using a standard PowerPoint presentation.

Carole Cragg is Associate Director, Betsy Dadabo is Library Technology Specialist, and Lyndi Finifrock, Reference/Instruction at Bethel University Library. Jennifer Borkenhagen is the Circulation Supervisor and Reference & Instruction Librarian at Concordia University - St Paul. Sue Gray is Reference / Circulation Librarian and the College of St. Catherine.
