Canvas Course Design Snapshot (Partnership with Center for Faculty Excellence)

Moving from Sakai to Canvas is a great opportunity to revisit the overall design of one or more of your courses. The Center for Faculty Excellence is hosting special 2-hour Canvas Course Design Snapshot sessions for instructors interested in refining and aligning their course goals around Canvas’ tools and organizational structure. The 2-hour interactive session will outline the process of making evidence-based course decisions and help you learn about the features of Canvas that can be used to help you achieve your course goals. After the interactive session, CFE and ITS team members will be available for specific questions and technology support to ensure you have a plan to build your course in Canvas and to answer any technical questions you may have about Canvas or the migration process.
