Perusall - Turning Reading Assignments into Engaging Collective Activities

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this workshop, we will do a deep dive into Perusall, the social reading platform introduced by Eric Mazur in his keynote.  Based on extensive patent-pending behavioral research at Harvard, Perusall turns often-skipped solitary reading assignments into engaging collective activities students don’t want to miss.  Perusall keeps students on track before class, ensuring students learn more, get instant answers to their questions, come to class prepared, and enjoy the experience. During the workshop we will try out the platform live and explore how to use Perusall to better understand student misconceptions, structure class discussion, and save time.
