  • Canvas Essentials: This zoom workshop is designed to introduce instructors to Canvas for teaching face-to-face / remote, online, and hybrid classes. Participants will also gain access to the online course to complete their training.
  • Canvas Facilitation & Gradebook Training: This 90-minute session will focus on how to effectively facilitate your Canvas course. We’ll discuss ways to maintain regular and substantive interaction (RSI), grade and provide feedback to students, and use Canvas analytics. We’ll spend some time building out these features in your course shell at the end of the workshop.
