In the age of TL;DR (too long; didn’t read), student reading statistics aren’t encouraging. As instructors, we may be discouraged by students’ reading habits (or the lack thereof). Yet, we want students to engage with texts so as to engage with ideas in class. How can we help our students embrace reading? How do we help our students see the value in reading? Do you we ask too much, or too little?
In this workshop, facilitated by Adam Smith and Sara Cavallo, we’ll consider the reasons students may choose not to read, including mismatched expectations of students and instructors.
