  • Registration Required

Faculty Panelists: Anna Abramson, David Hanneke, Sarah Hews, Catherine Infante, Yael Rice

The Academic Technology Services (ATS) office presents a faculty sharing session on "Collaborative Annotation with Perusall and Other Tools." We invite you to join the discussion, whether you’ve used Perusall or other annotation tools before or are interested in trying them in the future.

In the first half of this session, faculty panelists will share their experience of using Perusall and other annotation tools to build reading communities and to promote collaboration and critical analysis in the Amherst courses. They will share concrete strategies for linking asynchronous and synchronous modalities of learning and will also discuss the challenges of teaching remotely during the pandemic. Examples from a wide range of disciplines will illustrate the replicability of these strategies in any course. Panelists will also talk about how digital annotation tools can be relevant in face-to-face courses even after the pandemic. The second half of the session will be an open discussion among all session attendees.

ATS staff will be on hand after the session from 1-1:30 p.m. to answer any technical questions or demonstrate any specific Perusall features attendees are interested in.

Session will meet via Zoom. Please RSVP below!
