Teaching Philosophy 32 (3):233-245 (2009)
This article is an introduction to classroom response systems (“clickers”) for philosophy lecture courses.

Several specific applications are illustrated including using clicker questions to give students an emotional investment in a topic, to stimulate discussion, to display change of attitudes, and to allow for the use of the peer instruction technique, which combines lectures and small groups
