Student Response systems are traditionally thought of as in-class tools. And why not? They are great for creating connections, improving student focus, identifying misconceptions, and giving every student a voice. But there are a variety of ways that schools are beginning to use Student Response systems. Dr. Kimi King of the University of North Texas will present some ways that she uses iClicker Cloud (the Student Response System at UNT) in creative, out of the box ways. This presentation is ideal for faculty or administrators interested in adopting a SRS for the institution, and how to maximize that investment.

- Kimi King
Professor at University of North TexasDr. Kimi Lynn King is a Distinguished Teaching Professor at the University of North Texas (UNT). Along with her partner Dr. James Meernik, they began leading study abroad programs and conducting research on the International War Crimes Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) since 2003. Their study abroad program won the 2007 American Political Science Association / Rowman & Littlefield Award for most Innovative course, and it was among the first programs in the world to take both undergraduate and graduate students to the ICTY as part of course curriculum. In cooperation with the ICTY Victims and Witnesses Section, they completed the most in-depth comprehensive survey to date about the short- and long-term impact of testifying on witnesses before the Tribunal. These results were presented across the Former Yugoslavia (Bosnia, Croatia, Kosovo, & Serbia), as well as at the ICTY in The Hague in June 2016. Dr. King’s research interests address the role of law in conflict resolution, and she has published on a wide range of topics including human and civil rights, international law, U.S. Supreme Court decision-making and foreign policy, gender studies, and sexual violence. She is a regular political news correspondent for media outlets, develops pedagogical content for university publishers, and serves as a founding member of the American Moot Court Association (a national undergraduate law and policy advocacy organization). Her proudest collaboration with Dr. Meernik is their 13 year-old daughter Marlene who reminds them both daily why it is important to leave the world a better place than you found it. She has taught at the University of North Texas since 1993.
