Spring 2015 Teaching Workshop Series
Canvas as a Pedagogical Platform
Friday, January 30th, 2015 | 10:00am-12:00pm
The architecture of Canvas opens opportunities to teachers and students to interact with the platform in the same ways they interact with the rest of the Internet: creatively, socially, dynamically. Canvas is a pedagogical tool that has an ey e toward open adaptation — and toward learning out in the world, rather than only behind computer screens or inside brick-and-mortar classrooms. Canvas is not the course: it’s the launching pad for the course.
We will discuss how Canvas can support your teaching, and how using Modules, Quizzes, Rubrics and Collaborations can improve your assessment, feedback and communication with students. The Teaching and Learning Technology team will spend the last hour assisting and setting up appointments to address additional Canvas questions.
Registration is now closed. Same-day registration will start at 9:30am in the Gould Auditorium.
Teaching a Flipped Classroom / Hybrid Course
Friday, March 27th, 2015 | 9:30am-11:30am | Location TBA
Change is both exciting and intimidating for most people. By taking this workshop, you are clearly looking into the possibility of changing how you teach. Why change? What are you hoping to accomplish? What concerns do you have about making this change?
This workshop will introduce you to the concept of the flipped classroom and will guide you towards thinking about your teaching and learning preferences in relation to the flipped classroom and active learning. It will also help you conceptualize the flipped design for your own classroom.
