Upcoming Gradescope and Hypothesis Workshops

Vendor workshops that cover a wide range of pedagogical strategies, designed to help you with this semester and beyond.


One-hour workshops focus on how you can use Gradescope to deliver and grade your assignments that are paper-based, fully online, and a combination of the two.

In these workshops, you will learn how to:

  • Set up assignments where students can submit freeform work (no printers or templates needed)
  • Grade your existing exams and homework on Gradescope
  • Make rubric changes as you grade – changes apply to previously graded work to maintain consistency
  • Write each comment only once – apply previously used comments with a click
  • Use ‘assignment analytics’ to gain insight into student learning

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 social annotation, we will demonstrate how Hypothesis is used with course readings in your LMS. Participants will gain a clear understanding of how to start incorporating social annotation into their courses to improve student outcomes. These sessions are great introductions to using Hypothesis and social annotation in your courses. (30 minutes)

All-level special topics workshops

Take a deeper dive into Hypothesis with our special topics workshops! These workshops are largely based on pedagogy and may not review how to use Hypothesis in your LMS. They are helpful for both new Hypothesis users who aren’t sure how to incorporate social annotation into their courses and experienced users looking for new ideas. Descriptions for workshops available on their website. (45 minutes each)
