Maximizing Canvas in Residential Courses

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Canvas has unique tools to help in the resident instruction (RI) classroom. Information Sciences and Technology faculty and learning designers have been testing out the use of these tools and will share insight on their experiences. This discussion will include self-assigned teams, calendar scheduler, synchronous discussions, attendance manager, and more.

Learn how one instructor was able to hold synchronous discussions in Canvas during the time the class would meet, when she needed to unexpectedly travel out of town. Another instructor found the attendance manager a useful tool to keep track of attendance in the RI classroom by connecting it to the gradebook for class. Meanwhile, a third instructor set up teams on different topics and allowed the students to self-select which topics they wanted to work on.

Each of these experiences offer an opportunity to discover new affordances in the Canvas learning management system and how they can be leveraged in resident instruction. Join us in this discussion to explore more of these ideas and what growing pains the presenters ran into along the way.
