      What does PRS mean to you?
   1.An interactive tool for use in lectures or
     presentations
   2.Perfect responsive students
   3.President of the Royal Society
   4.It means nothing to me

               Reasons for change
   •   Tours- staff intensive
   •   Less interesting for students
   •   No interaction
   •   Difficulty with larger numbers
   •   Difficult to measure effectiveness

                             Aims
   • To improve the induction experience for
     the students
   • To make induction fun and slightly light-
     hearted
Kingston University London

    The Science Team would advocate PRS
                 because…
   • It enables students to communicate with
     us whilst remaining anonymous – however
     shy and retiring they may be they can still
     join in
   • It’s fun and improves the image of
     librarians and libraries!
   • Students are looking at the screen not the
     presenter – props are good!

Library Services

     The Science Team would advocate PRS
                  because…
   • Provides opportunities for us to make our talks
     reactive – what we say depends on their
     responses
   • It enables staff to gauge student opinion of the
     library and our induction
   • We get to play at being stand up comics
   • (students love prizes – if a million isn’t available
     Wagamama vouchers will do)
What is this student doing wrong?!

Library Services

          What was the student doing
                  wrong?!
   •    Eating, drinking and chatting on her
        mobile
   •    Sitting quietly and reading a book
   •    Finishing her essay which was due
        yesterday
   •    Not eating enough green vegetables

           The Science Team would warn
               prospective PRSers…
   • That initially you have a colleague with you to
     set up, press buttons, troubleshoot with
     handsets and hand out leaflets.
   • To check out the space and facilities you will be
     using beforehand
   • To set up equipment in advance if possible
   • You will need to book the equipment
   • Ensure you practice first

       Do you think that you would consider
           using the PRS in the future?
   •    Definitely
   •    Possibly
   •    Never
