Reading NOW: Adapting Offline Strategies to Improve Students' Reading Online

Monday, February 27th, 2017 | 11:00 am – 12:30 pm | ILC 136

As part of the General Education Writing Initiative, OIA invites you to participate in a group broadcast of an upcoming webinar Reading NOW: Adapting Offline Strategies to Improve Students' Reading Online.

This webinar will describe the need for increased attention to reading and outlines ways that instructors can help students become better and more deliberate readers of the range of texts they will encounter in their postsecondary academic careers and beyond. 

Participants will leave the webinar with:  

  • A better understanding of how and why students are struggling with reading.
  • A pedagogical framework within which students develop a repertoire of reading strategies, apply these to different kinds of kinds of texts, and have opportunities to reflect on this process so that students are positioned to transfer what they are learning about reading.   
  • Strategies and assignments that help make students’ reading practices visible so instructors and students can work together on them.

The webinar is from 11-12, and will be followed by a discussion of how the ideas presented apply to your own teaching.

Space is limited; please RSVP.  Questions and comments to Lindsay Hansen at lhansen@email.arizona.edu
