Fall 2017 Week Zero Canvas Workshops

The three part introductory series of Canvas Workshops, Canvas 101: Introduction to Canvas; Pages & Modules in Canvas; and Assignments & Grades in Canvas will be offered on Wednesday and Thursday of Week Zero after Winter Break.  This series will introduce instructors and instructional staff to Canvas and give the basic skills and knowledge they will need to begin building courses in Canvas.

We will also be offering an introductory demonstration of the new TurnItIn® LTI interface in Canvas on Wednesday of Week Zero.  This workshop will give those who use TurnItIn® in Canvas a chance to see the new TurnItIn® interface in Canvas and even begin adding TurnItIn® to their Canvas assignments if they wish.  You can read more about the upcoming upgrade to TurnItIn® in Canvas in Turnitin® Integration in Canvas to be Upgraded over Winter Break.

All the workshops will be conducted in computer teaching labs so participants can build along during instruction or try things out if desired.  Attendees can also bring their own device.  All four of the workshops are scheduled on January 4 or 5, 2017, and you can visit the CTL’s Events and Workshops page to register or find out more.

The CTL Tip of the Week is brought to you by the William G. Jackson Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL). For more general information or help with Canvas at Michigan Tech, be sure to visit Canvas One Stop.
