Event Date: 14th September 2022


Active learning and student engagement have been two of the main concerns in higher education, especially in the last decade. The pandemic added an extra layer to practising active learning in online or hybrid settings. Asking questions and generating discussions are more challenging in those conditions, but there is one tool that can help tutors overcome those issues: Mentimeter.

This platform enables the teacher to design interactive presentations, add questions and collect answers live during the lesson. One of the benefits of this platform is that the teacher can have in one place content, videos, links, quizzes and interactive questions without the need to use multiple websites and applications.

This session will help teachers get introduced to the basics of Mentimeter, learn how to design interactive slides and add interactivity to their lessons.
