Hypothesis Partner Workshops

Hypothesis Partner Workshops | June, July

The workshops listed below are being hosted by the Hypothesis Customer Success Team, and are designed to help faculty and instructors learn more about using social annotation in their courses to make reading active, visible, and social.

Just getting started with Hypothesis? Come join our mini intro workshops below to learn how to add Hypothesis to readings in your learning management system (LMS).

Want to make sure that you're taking full advantage of the features of Hypothesis? Join us in one of these mini sessions.

Have questions about implementing Hypothesis? Want to collaborate and learn from other instructors using Hypothesis at their institutions? Pop in to Office Hours with our success team to ask questions and engage with peers about social annotation with Hypothesis.

Looking forward to seeing you in one of our summer sessions!
