The Subtle Art of Enticing Your Students to Read

Many instructors wonder why their students don't read assigned texts. Well, wonder no more! Join us for a spirited workshop on how to better integrate readings into course design, how to frame readings, and how to teach effective reading strategies. We'll even introduce you to software that can help your students engage more deeply with texts. 

In this workshop, you will:
   
   -- Learn how course design choices influence reading, including:
       *How to choose texts that support learning outcomes;
       *How to integrate texts into an assessment scheme;
       *How to frame readings; and
       *How to teach effective reading strategies.
   -- Get familiar with the benefits of Perusall.
   -- Commit to trying something new.
   
Come join us for snacks, some good cheer, and some answers. Led by Brian Baldi (CTL) and Rebecca Petitti (Writing Program).
