It is used with suitable pedagogic approaches to obtain the expected learning outcome. The aim of the study is to specify student views about the environment developed as a result of the integration of Team-based learning strategy and clicker technology in education. The participants are 30 first-year engineering students taking Physics I at Near East University. A case study design was used in this research. After overviewing the literature, the researcher prepared a semi-structured interview form to collect the data. İnterviews at the voluntary base was given after a five-week application process. The data were analyzed through content analysis method. The findings indicated that student perception of clicker supported Team-Based learning was positive.
