Event Description

Are you considering teaching in the Canvas environment, looking to freshen-up your Canvas course and/or needing to troubleshoot technical challenges? Join us at the Canvas Open Studio where you can work 1:1 with Canvas experts from around the campus exploring best practices in teaching an online and/or blended course, library course reserves for course readings, and innovative ways to create and share course materials with students and colleagues. Stay for as long or as little as you like! Be prepared to dig into the tools and your course and leave with a clear vision of how you can use Canvas to enhance your teaching practice and workplace!  A good first step prior to attending the Open Studio is to self-enrol in the self-paced Canvas 101.
