Intro to Hypothesis Webinar


Hypothesis will be hosting an introductory workshop for Barnard faculty and staff using their social tool on Friday, January 22 at 2pm. Barnard has a subscription to Hypothesis, which faculty can access directly through CourseWorks (Canvas).

Becky George from Hypothesis will discuss how collaborative annotation with Hypothesis can be used to make student reading visible, active, and social. She will also demonstrate how teachers are using annotation-powered reading to empower student writing, helping students develop these foundational academic skills. In addition to sharing pedagogical best practices for collaborative annotation, Becky will demonstrate how Hypothesis can be used with course readings in Canvas. After presenting, Becky will lead participants in a discussion about how Hypothesis collaborative annotation can be used in their specific disciplines and with their specific teaching and learning objectives. 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.
