Last winter, UBC Okanagan launched a campaign to collect unused iClicker remotes from students on campus. While the technology is no longer in use at UBC, there was an opportunity to collaborate with long-term institutional partner, the University for Development Studies (UDS) in Tamale, Ghana, to keep the technology in use. This summer, six classroom “kits” were shipped to UDS, including over 250 student-donated remotes and accompanying instructor remotes and base units to implement the technology. The two institutions plan to further collaborate on workshops that support clicker pedagogy and using student response systems as a means of engaging students effectively in courses.
