Getting Students to Enjoy the Reading

Why Perusall?

When a class is discussion-based, it is critical that students do the reading assignments ahead of time. How can we ensure that students completed the reading and assign points to the task without administering the dreaded comprehension test? This session will provide a tutorial for implementing Perusall, which is described as a “social e-reader platform.” This session is for instructors who want students to actively engage with the reading material to maximize comprehension and retention. It’s also for lazy and cheap instructors like me who want Perusall to do the grading for them. Win-win! Presenter: Angela Kilb
