Introduction to Teaching With Canvas Online Course 

Facilitated Course

Our next facilitated course will start on September 13, 2021. The six-week course introduces you to teaching an online class using the Canvas learning management system and includes a module on Designing for Accessibility. You will learn how the system works through a series of curated readings and recall what you have learned through formative quizzes. You will also practice what you have learned through a series of hands-on exercises focused on the subject you teach. The final project will require you to have at least two modules, plus an orientation module built for a course you plan on teaching in the future. There will be an orientation session held via Zoom on June 14th and weekly office hours to go over materials and discuss questions. Please fill out the registration form  for the training.


Self-Paced Course
