Topic Outline

  • TurningPoint Introduction

    The lecture theatre at RCPE holds over 300 people and has full slide, data and video projection facilities. We also use an interactive voting system (TurningPoint) that works in conjunction with PowerPoint. If you are giving a talk at RCPE and wish to use TurningPoint, please send the event coordinator a copy of your presentation, including the information/questions a week before the symposium, to allow time for programming the questions.
    • Presentation tips

      • Provide a minimum of three options for the audience to vote on
      • Avoid offering more than five options
      • You can include more than one correct answer or best response - clarify to participants if this is the case
      • List options in a logical sequence if possible
      • Randomly distribute the correct answer among the options
      • Insert a 'discussion slide' after a Turning Point question to encourage peer review and instruction
      • TurningPoint is ideal for end of session or topic checks for understanding
      • For scenario based questions, we recommend polling the participants, allow for discussion, and then repeat poll
      • Make all options homogenous in content, form and grammatical structure
      • Avoid the use of negatives, such as "not” or "except”, in the initial question or statement
