Live polling helps tough engineering concepts sink in


Live polling helps tough engineering concepts sink in

Dr. Yan Tang, Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, uses student interaction and constant feedback to drive learning in engineering.

To help foster discussion and understanding, she embeds Poll Everywhere polls in her PowerPoint slides for each lecture. They crop up at carefully planned intervals throughout her classes.
