CETL Tips of the Week – Using Perusall to Engage Students in Pre-class Readings

Using Perusall to Engage Students in Pre-class Readings

3 Benefits of Using Perusall:
Engaging Students in Collaboration
Perusall changes the nature of reading from an individual responsibility (isolated learning experience) to a collective effort or social engagement.
Visualising Student Participation in Data Analytics
It collects a variety of data analytics on student participation, such as active reading time, types of annotation, upvotes given on questions and responses, etc.
Understanding Student Reading/Learning behaviours
Teachers could also identify what kind of roles the students are trying to play in the collaborative annotation exercises (such as critical reviewers, interpreters, etc.).
