Canvas Design Summer Institute: Session 10 Kickoff

Monday, August 3, 2020 - 9:30am
Online via Canvas coursework

Whether offering your course in a face-to-face, blended, or entirely online modality, using the Learning Management System, Canvas, is a powerful tool. This course will challenge participants to evaluate basic course layout, assessment options, course engagement tools, resources for student success, as well as the accessibility of course materials. Participants can expect to engage in helpful discussions with their peers and course facilitators and to develop completed elements of a course for use in the summer and/or fall 2020 semesters. Take advantage of this opportunity to receive feedback from our expert Center for Teaching & Educational Technology Staff as you thoughtfully and intentionally develop your next Canvas course. 

Here's what you can expect...

  • Participants must complete all course deliverables to receive a certificate of completion as well as receive the Professional Development funding of $1,000 

  • It should take between 20-40 hours to work through the course depending on where faculty are in their current course planning 
  • This is an asynchronous course in which faculty may move through the content at their own pace, however, each module includes due dates for assessment items to ensure deliverables are completed within the required time period 
  • Office hours will be available with course facilitator(s) for additional support 
  • Finally, the Center for Teaching & Educational Technology also offers workshops on related topics to supplement learning
