Canvas for All
This three hour session will go through Canvas basics before developing more advanced use of the system. We invite staff to take part in as many or as few sessions as they wish, and are sure that they will find something useful within each topic, whatever their confidence with the system.
The sessions will run as follows:
Introductory (50 minute session, followed by 10 minute break): This section will look at some of the fundamentals within the system and would be ideal for staff new to Canvas. This will cover Canvas navigation, contents of a course and creating assignments.
Beyond the Basics (50 minute session, followed by 10 minute break): This will look at more detailed course design, covering good practice in developing home pages and how to structure your courses.
Developing your VLE pedagogy (50-60 minute session): This will detail how to make your course activities more engaged and self-paced for students. We will look at how to use discussion boards, collaborations and quizzes to encourage active, social learning in your Canvas course.
Advance booking is required. You can book for the entire 3 hours or for an individual session. Please advise as to your preference at the time of booking.
