A Win-Win: Increase Reading Rates and Student Engagement with Perusall
January 21, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 amFree
Perusall, which integrates with Blackboard (meaning no separate login needed), is a free collaborative annotation tool. Perusall has been shown to increase pre-class reading significantly (greater than 90% of students consistently complete readings in classes using this tool). Students (in small groups up to 20), collectively mark up readings with threaded questions and comments. The software generates a “confusion report” for instructors, highlighting areas of the text that may warrant deeper in-class discussion, as well as an instructor-facing analytics report, which enables grading of reading assignments. Perusall also has a feature that allows for collaborative annotation of instructor-created or publicly accessible videos.
Facilitated by Jen Garrett-Ostermiller, CTL Faculty Development Specialist and Courtney Giles, CEMS Director of Curricular Enrichment and Lecturer
