Ready to teach with UC Davis Canvas? Get started at June 16 workshops

Instructors who want to learn about teaching with UC Davis Canvas, the new learning management system (LMS) at UC Davis, have an excellent opportunity to do so this Thursday, June 16.

From 9 a.m. to noon that day in room 2102 of the Student Community Center, instructional technologists from Information and Educational Technology (IET) will lead workshops that will provide an overview of Canvas, explain its features, answer questions, and help instructors set up their courses.

"The timing of the workshops is meant to be especially helpful to faculty wishing to teach with Canvas during Summer Session I," said Andy Jones, academic associate director for Academic Technology Services in IET, and one of the presenters.

The event is free, but please register by the afternoon of June 15 so that IET can create Canvas course sites for all the participants.

Other presenters include instructional technologists Steve Faith and Mark West, and members of ATS' Faculty Support group.
