DescriptionThis event is a collaboration between ATS and Remote Humanities and is open to all.

Teaching reading has never been easy. First, the act of reading is by nature intangible. Then, there are different forms of reading: from textual analysis and close reading to translation, from assessing, collating, and evaluating sources to theoretical and conceptual readings and quantitative analysis of texts in linguistics. What strategies have proven successful for teaching reading? What challenges have we faced and how have we adapted? What new approaches might we incorporate in Winter Quarter and perhaps bring back to our teaching once we fully return to face-to-face instruction? A panel of faculty and instructors from across the humanities and social sciences will share their reflections on these and other questions, leading into an open discussion. Faculty will reflect on using the social annotation application Hypothesis in the Autumn Quarter, sharing lessons learned.
