Trainer Guide: Audience Response System

Trainers who are organizing a KM workshop will want to take a look at this guide beforehand. The guide provides an overview of an interactive technique for evaluating the training workhop (or any other type of conference, meeting, or event), called an Audience Response System. Using an online tool, such as Poll Everywhere, trainers can ask participants a question, and participants can respond using the Internet on their mobile phone, tablet, or laptop. The online tool then automatically displays the results from the group (in the aggregate) in real-time through visual charts, for all participants to view and discuss. This trainer guide gives instructions on how to implement this evaluation activity. This quantiative evaluation technique can complement qualitative information provided from another evaluation activity, called the Expectation Board.
