Reading digital texts is much the same but also quite different from reading traditional paper or print. Whether it is through online learning or the traditional classroom, students are reading digital texts. What is the impact on student their comprehension? Join us to explore what the research is showing and what strategies we can teach students in maximizing their understanding of digital texts. This webpage is open for all to peruse. For details on joining the discussion or taking the asynchronous workshop, please email Molly Berger .

By the time students get tot he revision stage of writing, they often lack the motivation and skill to revise their writing effectively. In this session participants will share and research ideas for improving student willingness to revise their writing and skills in doing so. The class will begin with a live, online session for participants to meet and share ideas. This will be followed by independent time to read, research, reflect, and possibly test some revision activities. A final live, online session will allow participants to share their findings and plan for next steps.
