From Gen Ed To Grad School: Active Reading With Perusall
From Jon Gunnell
Do you ever struggle with getting students to engage closely with readings, or talk specifically about a text? Gina and Lindsey will talk about their experience using Perusall, an online tool that turns readings into interactive discussions. Students can annotate alongside a text, reply to each other, and closely analyze a range of readings. They’ll discuss their experience using the app, how it works compared to classic discussion posts, and how it improved engagement in their courses.
