Hypothesis is a social annotation tool installed directly in your learning management system (LMS). Adding Hypothesis to readings in your LMS supports student success by placing active discussion right on top of course readings, enabling students and teachers to add comments and start conversations in the margins of texts.
To learn more about making reading more active, visible, and social using Hypothesis, please join us in one of our upcoming workshops. RSVP via one of the links below.
Activating Annotation with Hypothesis:
The Hypothesis team will share how teachers are using annotation-powered reading to help students develop foundational academic skills like deep reading and persuasive writing. In addition to sharing pedagogical best practices for collaborative annotation, we will demonstrate how Hypothesis is used with course readings in your LMS. Participants will come away from this session with a clear idea of how to start incorporating collaborative annotation into their courses to improve student outcomes.

Implementing social annotation with Hypothesis in your courses
The steps for integrating a new edtech tool are critical for ensuring that it becomes a seamless part of teaching, not just another fancy tool. This workshop will focus on creating a supportive and scaffolded learning environment for using social annotation, and will provide you with the steps for empowering students to create meaningful annotations to not only enhance their own learning, but to expand the collaborative nature of your course.
Using Hypothesis with small groups
When teaching a large class, it can be a challenge to engage the entire class and ensure that students don’t feel invisible. Using Hypothesis for social annotation in small groups can help you make more meaningful and collaborative connections with your students. One of our most frequent requests is for the ability to segment large classes. This workshop focuses on the options for using Hypothesis in small groups, and it will cover how social annotation can be used to create a more collaborative learning environment.
