Creative Canvas Course Contest (C-4) Winners available for review

Last Spring, the Center for Teaching and Learning’s second annual Creative Canvas Course Contest (C-4) saw students nominate Canvas courses from almost every department that they felt were intuitive and easy to navigate, provided convenient access to information and materials they needed, and offered resources and activities that helped them succeed in that class.

After the results came in, some of the nine winners (listed below) have graciously agreed to provide short video course tours so that others can see and learn from the design features of their well-received Canvas courses. 

 Congratulations to:

  •  Lauren M. Bowen, (HU3151), Assistant Professor, Humanities
  •  Paul Charlesworth, (CH1160), Associate Professor, Chemistry
  • Kalen Larson (FA 3650) Assistant Professor, Visual & Performing Arts
  • James DeClerck (MEEM3502), Professor of Practice, Mechanical Engg-Engg Mechanics
  • Timothy Havens (CS5821), Assistant Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering
  • Michele Loughead (BUS 1100), Lecturer, School of Business and Economics
