Friday,  Oct. 28 | Information for Prospective Fulbright Students

Facilitators:

Jolyn Schleiffarth, Fellowships & Benefits Coordinator, Graduate School

Howard Lehman, Professor, Political Science

Friday,  Nov. 18 | Canvas as a Pedagogical Platform

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 eye 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.

Facilitator:

Jon Thomas, Director, Teaching & Learning Technologies
