HEA Workshop

You can find the workshop materials here.

The objectives of this workshop are:

  • To give participants the opportunity to contribute to the social annotation (highlighting, glossing, tagging) of a text. Participants will experience first-hand the affordances of these platforms for student preparation in terms of attention, collaboration, debate and sense-making.

  • To hear case studies of social tagging in action in learning and research contexts (from the University of Leicester and Birmingham City University).

  • To discuss, on the basis of discoveries in the workshop and case studies, the pedagogical implications of a) some notable obstacles to the classroom study of extended texts which students are instructed to prepare beforehand, b) the contribution to student comprehension, spoken and written articulacy as well as confidence that is made by prior collaborative work on the text which foregrounds precise attention and peer-discussion, and c) how technology can facilitate activities such as this.
