This resource is a comprehensive guide to the effective use of hand-held personal response devices known as "clickers," which allow students in large lecture classes to respond interactively to a problem.  The resource offers tips on how to implement clickers appropriately, how to select questions or problems, and how to use responses to aid students in concept formation.  This educational guide was developed by the staff of the Science Education Initiative at the University of Colorado and the University of British Columbia.
