Different training formats will be offered to help faculty get acclimated to the Canvas LMS.

Hands-On Training with Small Groups

Small group training sessions are being offered for those interested in a hands-on approach to learning the nuances of Canvas. Training sessions are conducted in a computer lab, so you’re able to work with your course materials. Remember to save your files to Box for easy access or bring a flash drive to easily access your syllabus and course materials that you want to implement within your course.

In-Focus Topic Specific Workshops

The In-Focus workshops will address specific topics and functions of Canvas and will provide a more in-depth explanation of specific tasks or tools, as well suggestions for best practices. Depending on the content presented, these workshops will run between one and two hours. The format of the In-Focus workshops is different than the Hands-On trainings, they are more demonstration oriented and do not require the participant to work within Canvas while attending.
