The Reading Lab

    Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review

    Abstract

    In 2014 and 2015 I coordinated a first-year Literary Studies subject—“Approaches to Literature.” “Approaches” has an enrolment of over 400 students. In one of the lecture slots I trialled a large-group learning and teaching activity—The Reading Lab.The Reading Lab is a series of lectures devoted to the practices of reading.The lab sessions seek to address a problem that various reading pedagogy scholars have communicated: that our university students are often not very resilient readers and that students often do not complete set readings.
