How Do I Get My Students to Read the Textbook?
Faculty and teaching assistants commonly complain that students do not complete pre-class reading assignments. This workshop will explore the reasons why students do not pursue expected reading assignments and tested approaches for engaging students in this reading, all within the context of why reading is assigned and what instructors expect students to learn from the reading. Participants will leave with strategies that they can immediately implement in their classes.
