Innovative Technology at AUK

The American University of Kuwait (AUK), a leading innovator of educational technology in Kuwait, announces the introduction of Interwrite's Personal Response System (PRS). AUK is the first educational institution in Kuwait to utilize this interactive teaching tool which enables the instructor to assess student comprehension of concepts immediately, questions are asked, and the students lock in answers. The Instructor can then interact with the class on subject matter and keep testing the class until all achieve the correct answer - all in real time.

The PRS system improves the quality of teaching in that it encourages student involvement, provides immediate feedback to students as well as professors and automates classroom recordkeeping. It records attendance automatically, checks to make sure all present are responding to questions and identifies anyone who fails to respond. Classroom participation is constantly checked. When questions are in quiz form, PRS objectively records student performance. This means classroom time is devoted to teaching and not record-keeping.

Dr. John Rutland

Dr. John Rutland, Associate Professor of Business at AUK, has led the way in testing and implementing the PRS System (known as "the clicker" at AUK) since Fall 2008. Dr. Rutland will be demonstrating "the clicker" at the American Business Council of Kuwait on May 25 and to AUK faculty on May 26.
