  • demonstration of how teachers are using annotation-powered reading to empower student writing, helping students develop these foundational academic skills
  • sharing effective pedagogical practices for collaborative annotation of course readings in Canvas and integrated with the Canvas gradebook
  • discussion about how collaborative annotation can be used in specific disciplines and with their specific teaching and learning objectives.
