Using Nearpod To Create Interactive Educational Sessions

Nearpod allows you to engage with students using fun and interactive content, collect and share student responses instantly, and track student comprehension real-time. Dr. Salzman will share examples of how Nearpod has been implemented in the medical school curriculum, and provide guidance on how to create new slides or easily turn your PowerPoint, Google Slides, or PDFs into an interactive Nearpod presentation. The session will also explore how the same technology can be used to create interactive asynchronous learning modules where you as a faculty member can track completion and assess acquisition of knowledge. Dr. Salzman will show you how to get started!
To prepare for the session:
  1. Please download the free Nearpod app to your touchscreen device with internet capability (iPad, iPhone, Android tablet) or bring a computer with internet capabilities.
  2. Bring a laptop computer
  3. Create a free Nearpod account –at nearpod.com
After this workshop, participants will be able to:
  1. Describe how the additional use of this type of interactive technology can create engaging and active learning environments
  2. Apply concepts learned during the workshop to begin creating a nearpod session

My primary interests center around the use of simulation as a method of instruction. Specifically, I am interested in curriculum development, assessment of students, and the development of novel teaching strategies.
