Understanding how Students Use Textbooks: Lessons from the Research

One of the most common issues facing faculty at the university level is that students never seem to read their textbooks. As a result, fully utilizing the textbook in a course is a challenge. One landmark study on textbook use found that high school and university students struggle to use the assigned texts as a learning tool but community college students perform noticeably better. This workshop will explain why that is, outline how students use textbooks, and provide you with strategies to encourage and teach students to use their books more effectively in your courses.
