To kick start our University-wide move to Canvas over the next 6-18 months, the Educational Innovation Team as part of the DVC (Education) Portfolio are hosting a series of ‘Welcome to Canvas’ sessions to introduce interested academics and designers to how Canvas works, and importantly how to ‘think in Canvas’, which is fundamentally different to how we have been thinking about unit site design for many years.
In these brief 1-hour sessions, we will discuss how Canvas is structurally and philosophically different, how basic unit site design will work in Canvas, introduce you to key Canvas features, and start reimagining your unit sites. These sessions are repeats of each other, so you only need to go to one. Get in quick because we can only fit in a certain number of people due to venue size restrictions. If there is significant demand, we’ll host more sessions or move to a larger venue. Unless stated otherwise, the sessions are held in the Educational Innovation space on level 2 in Fisher Library.
These sessions are for geared for academics and staff who will be building in Canvas.Thu 24 August 2017, 12 pm Full Tue 29 August 2017, 12 pm Filling up Thu 14 September 2017, 11 am New Fri 6 October 2017, 1 pm New Mon 16 October 2017, 12 pm New
