Online Canvas theme sessions

In 2021, our Canvas theme sessions continue. Whereas the ten 2020 sessions dealt with Canvas features only, the 2021 sessions include additional tools of our digital learning environment.

In each session, we will discuss a different Canvas feature and address the best workflow in Canvas as well as good practices from a didactic point of view. A thirty-minute session starts with a 15 to 20 minute explanation followed by a Q&A.

Sessions are open to teaching and support staff who like to learn how these features and tools can enrich a blended or online PBL course or assessment.  Participation may count toward your Continuous Professional Development depending on your CPD objectives. Go to EDLAB CPD website for more on the CPD offering and conditions.
