This workshop will focus on collaborative reading activities and group annotation of texts using the Perusall platform. Texts can be drawn from PDF files, websites, and online textbooks. Students read and annotate the text with their comments and questions. Instructors can adjust the grading criteria to meet their expectations. Students who demonstrate deeper engagement with the texts and with their classmates earn higher scores. Some instructors also use Perusall for student peer review of writing assignments. This session will give an overview of the platform, explain how to get started, and demonstrate different types of assignments within Perusall.
