Innovative Ways of Teaching with Perusall

Facilitators: Dr. Lu Ding, Dr. Linda Ghent, and Dr. Jim Bruehler
Location:  Online (Zoom)

Perusall is a social annotation tool that can be easily embedded in D2L Brightspace. Many faculty use it to replace asynchronous online discussions, and many of them use it before the class and bring in any topics that need to be further addressed in face-to-face meetings. Faculty have reported that Perusall has substantially increased student engagement in online discussions and students have also shown higher interest in participating in Perusall online discussions than traditional D2L online discussions. In this workshop, Dr. Bruehler and Dr. Ghent will showcase some of the innovative ways that they used Perusall in their classes. In addition, Dr. Ding will present some pedagogies of how to use Perusall in a class including how to prepare students and how to familiarize students with Perusall.

The webinar will conducted through Zoom at the time listed. The Zoom meeting link will be sent to registrants in the confirmation and reminder emails. We recommend saving the meeting link on your calendar for easy access on the day of the webinar.

A recorded version of the presentation will be available after the webinar for those unable to attend.
