Engaging Students in Reading
with Hypothesis Social Annotation

Thursday, October 6, 2022, 3:00 – 4:00 pm ET

Irwin 303 (CAT), Butler University 

Join us and our guest for a snack break to learn how Butler faculty are making reading more active, more visible, and more social using Hypothesis with digital texts in Canvas.

Butler University’s Hypothesis success lead, Becky George, will show how you can add social annotation right on top of existing course content in Canvas to:

  • Develop foundational and advanced skills in reading, writing, and critical thinking.
  • Build connections that support community within classes and across campus.
  • Encourage peer-to-peer learning and strengthen digital collaboration skills.
  • Provide instructors with early and ongoing insight into student engagement, comprehension, and skill development.

Register now and Hypothesis will send you a credit for the snack of your choice delivered by GrubHub. Not hungry? Come anyway and bring your questions!
