Brown Bag Lunch: PollEverywhere explained!

Great news for those who love adding interactivity to their classrooms! LITS has purchased access to PollEverywhere, a tool for instructors who would like to poll students on devices they already own, such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops, to get feedback and polling data during their class sessions.

LITS is hosting a brown bag lunch about PollEverywhere on Thursday April 13. Some Mount Holyoke faculty who have already been using PollEverywhere in their classrooms will talk about what they have been doing, and there will be plenty of time for conversation and questions about using PollEverywhere. Instructors from all disciplines are encouraged to attend.

We will meet in Dwight Lounge 201 from 12:00 to 1:30 PM on Thursday, April 13. Feel free to bring your lunch; drinks and snacks will be provided.

RSVPs welcome, but not required, at
