This workshop will show how collaborative reading activities and group annotation of “texts” promote meaningful interaction and engagement. Assignments can draw on traditional texts as well as videos, images, audio files, websites, and online textbooks. Students read and annotate with their comments and questions. Students who demonstrate deeper engagement with the texts and with their classmates can earn higher scores. This session will give an overview of the platform, explain how to get started, and demonstrate different types of assignments within Perusall.
