During this 30 minute webinar we will explore an ongoing Nearpod pilot at the University of Sussex. Over the past academic year we shared 45 Nearpod licences with teaching staff from different areas of the university. The purpose of this pilot is to see how teaching staff at Sussex would want to use Nearpod, evaluate how useful Nearpod may be, generate different use cases, and make connections and share practice across the academic schools.
We will share how we implemented the pilot, including how it was advertised, how licences were allocated and what support and training was available to staff. Following this we will explore the feedback that we have received both from staff and students via mid-term evaluation surveys and one-to-one interviews, highlighting how it impacted the student experience, what users liked and disliked about the tool and what it afforded them. Furthermore will will present some of the contexts and ways in which Nearpod has been used with current Sussex students.
Finally we will put forward the ‘next steps’ of the project including how we intend to continue the pilot as well as the alternative tools and approaches that staff have been exploring as a result of their use, or not, of Nearpod.
