Asking your class to annotate the syllabus allows you to introduce students to social annotation in a low-stakes way. Even better, you’re providing them with an opportunity to engage with the syllabus, to share ideas and to ask questions about the course in a way that sets the tone for engagement throughout the term. In this workshop, we will review ideas and guidance for the collaborative syllabus annotation assignment. In addition to sharing pedagogical best practices for collaborative annotation, Christie from Hypothesis will demonstrate how Hypothesis can be used with course readings on Blackboard. Participants can expect to come away from this session with a clear idea about how they can start incorporating collaborative annotation into their courses to improve student success.
