Electronic voting special interest group

I’ve joined a group of staff from institutions around the country interested in the use of voting and other technologies that promote interaction with students in lectures and other teaching situations. We are hoping to set up a Special Interest Group (SIG) around this topic and have just had an online meeting about getting started.

Having wrangled a name for the group: ESTICT : Engaging Students Through In-Class Technology (yes, I know it’s a mouthful, but we didn’t want to limit it to just PRS/EVS voting technology) and next we want to promote it and hold our first event before the end of this calendar year. We will be looking to promote the use of any technologies used in HE to encourage interaction and engagement with an audience, including electronic voting systems. The focus will be practitioner-based and we aim to share and promote best practice.

We are looking for places to find funding for our events, so if anyone has an suggestions, please get in touch!
