Prepare for the Spring Semester with a Week of Free, Online Workshops on Canvas

Posted: November 21, 2016

Training Services’ WinterFest registration is now open, bringing a lineup of free, online training the week before the spring semester begins. This year's focus is on Canvas, the new learning management system, to help prepare you for the upcoming semester and June transition deadline. Sessions range from an introductory guide to the Canvas interface to in-depth discussions on effective syllabus content, assessment options, and the best practices for migrating and designing curriculums in the new system.
 
Scheduled for January 3-6, WinterFest is the perfect introduction to Canvas and the best way to learn how to meet your spring learning objectives with the new system.
