Breakout Session Descriptions
1. "Hypothes.is: Social Annotation for Collaborative Learning
Join us for an interactive workshop on Hypothes.is, an online social annotation tool available for use this semester. With this tool enabled in your class, students work together to annotate class texts (e.g., pdfs, websites), making this tool a novel way to spark discussion and model & encourage close reading. Bring your laptop or tablet, and expect approximately 15 minutes of presentation, 10 minutes of installation support, and 20 minutes of guided practice.

3. "Pedagogical Silver Linings"
For most of us our teaching has fundamentally changed during the pandemic. Adapting to remote and hybrid teaching has inspired us to focus on what is most important. In this session, the presenters will share some of the strategies that they adopted during the pandemic and will take back to the physical classroom. This will be an interactive session where participants are also invited to share their own “silver lining” experiences.
