I want to use this Tuesday Tip to remind you about the Spring into Canvas for Fall day, which will be held on Thursday April 20th both in person and via Zoom.
You can access the program here for more details about the sessions.
The Technology and Learning Program is planning a whole day to help faculty learn about Canvas and start getting familiar with the new learning management system.
Spring into Canvas for Fall
April 20, 9am – 4pm
Colusa Hall 116, 114, 111
Have a lot on your plate? TLP is breaking Canvas down into bite-sized tasks. Come for 10 minutes, a single session, or the entire day. Or just come have pastries and coffee and/or lunch. This day is all about you.
TLP Instructional Technology Consultants are hosting structured sessions and available to help you personally in a dedicated workroom. Join in-person or on Zoom. Our Canvas workroom will provide “10-Minute Tasks” that will help you get started.
- If joining us in-person, bring your laptop, your coffee mug, and TLP will help you get started with your transition to Canvas.
- If joining on Zoom, you’ll arrive in the TLP Lab when you click on Zoom link and will then be directed to a Zoom breakout-room.
- Can’t come at all? You haven’t missed the boat. We are here all summer and will continue to offer sessions and consulting to assist you before the fall semester starts when over 600 faculty will be using Canvas for the first time.
I also want to remind you that Faculty Development released a Zine last week focusing entirely on Canvas. In the Zine, you can read longer pieces about the transition to Canvas but you can also access practical tips about specific tools in Canvas.
TLP will offer more opportunities for training and support, both in person and via Zoom, later in April and in May, as well as during the summer.
I hope you will take this and future opportunities to learn more about Canvas and I particularly want to encourage faculty teaching in summer to attend the Spring into Canvas for Fall Day and other workshops this Spring to make sure you have the proper support for your summer courses!
