Enhancing Engagement in Large Community, Environment & Development Classes
Case study first published in 2024.
Initially learning about Top Hat through a colleague, Tim was impressed by its potential for interactivity and attendance tracking in large classes. Tim then had the chance to develop a new in-person class: CED 102N – Wicked Problems Like Inequality, Sustainability & Climate Change: What’s the Right Thing to Do? The class, designed to help students develop skills to understand and analyze complex issues, faced the challenge of engaging a large group of students effectively. The primary goal was to enhance student participation and interaction in a large classroom setting. So, Tim turned to Top Hat to make that goal a reality.
