Getting Students to Read Critically through Online Annotations

DHIL banner with some dots and lines

Have you ever struggled to get students to do all the readings you assigned? Or found that some students need guidance in how to read critically? You might be surprised to know that a solution to both of these problems is online annotations. In this workshop, Dr. Juan Pablo Alperin will share his experience using open pedagogy practices, including online annotations using the free online tool, to change how your students read. Participants will discuss their own experiences in motivating readings and discussions in the classroom, and will learn how the use of an online annotation tool can:

  • foster greater participation;
  • encourage students to read closely, without skimming, all the way to the end;
  • show students with less experience how others read closely; and d) give you, the instructor, a sense of what students found interesting or confusing in the assigned texts ahead of the classroom discussions.
