Spring into Teaching - Help! How Do I Get My Students to Read?
Instructors sometimes feel that their students just aren’t reading anymore. Or, if students are reading, they aren’t retaining the information effectively. Have YouTube videos, TikTok, and Echo360 killed students’ ability and motivation to read? Is reading a thing of the past? Or perhaps we have made course design choices that inadvertently discourage reading. In this session, we’ll look at how students read in both the print and digital context and explore concrete ways to structure our courses so students engage more deeply in the kind of active reading that helps them retain more information and builds critical thinking.
