Module Goals:

We recognize that faculty will come to this module with varying levels of expertise and/or anxiety over using digital texts in the classroom. Therefore, we will also cover some very basic, but important, strategies for reading electronic texts. These include effective navigating, recognizing the organization (or chunking) of information, interpreting web design, determining the credibility of online texts, and effective annotating and notetaking with online texts. The module will also consider multi-media and interactive texts.

Our learning goals for this module are:

  • Faculty will gain an awareness of the challenges students face when reading electronic texts.
  • Faculty will gain an awareness of the strategies students can employ when reading electronic academic texts.
