"Reading in the Digital Age: When Reading and Writing Intersect in the Writing Center"

National Conference of Peer Tutoring in Writing

Effective reading comprehension entails that readers engage their texts, but the digital medium tends to discourage active reading strategies. This presentation discusses how tutors can help students while researching, particularly with reading texts on-screen rather than on-paper. Participants will learn how to adapt active reading strategies to the digital environment.
