Abstract

The pervasive nature of digital technologies and students’ habitual use of them brings opportunities for their assimilation in the classroom environment. The Student Response System (SRS), Kahoot, which allows students to provide answers to multiple-choice questions instantly was introduced in the research methods course. The motivation for using such technology was to reinforce the key concepts, often very abstract, consolidate students’ learning, provide them with real-life feedback, and help them to grow in their knowledge and confidence of the subject matter. This presentation showcases the benefits of incorporating SRS in the research methods tutorials, informed by student feedback, which include better conceptual understanding and increased motivation resulting in the transition from surface to deep learning.
