P141: Mixed-method study on the way clickers are used by students in a large-enrollment general chemistry course

James MacArthur (Western Nebraska Community College, USA), Loretta Jones (University of Northern Colorado, USA)

Clickers were used to teach the first semester of a large-enrollment general chemistry course, in which student collaboration during the clicker questions was strongly encouraged.  Student interviews and focus groups were used to gain insight into the ways in which students interacted with each other during the clicker questions.  The data from these interviews were used to develop a student survey which was administered towards the end of the first semester during a subsequent year.  558 students responded to this survey.  The results of this survey will be discussed.  Suggestions will be made for the use of clickers in large-enrollment general chemistry courses based on these results.
