Teaching Effectively In Canvas

Teaching Effectively in Canvas (TEiC) is a new Faculty Engagement program designed to help make good teaching easier for instructors. It is comprised of four guided face-to-face workshops, with multiple sessions offered of each workshop. Each of the two-hour workshops focuses on a different aspect of teaching and learning and the Canvas tools that align with them, with activities designed to guide instructors through the creation of necessary elements. It is recommended that you attend all four workshops ideally in order, but you benefit from attending any.

For additional information on TEiC and upcoming programming navigate to its homepage.

Other In-Person Canvas Sessions

In-person Canvas demonstrations and training sessions will be offered regularly. 

Check the events list at the Canvas Info website for upcoming sessions.

Instructure, the Canvas vendor, offers a large repository of end-user resources including videos and online manuals. These resources are available on their Canvas Guides page.
