This week Dr Carley Nath talks about keeping students engaged and active during lectures using response technology.

At the University of Birmingham we use TurningPoint Student Response Technology.  Please contact the Birmingham Digital Education Team at and request a license for a TurningPoint, you will then receive login instructions so you can begin using the software.

For information on how to use this in the classroom, including step by step guides, please refer to the gateway course here:
