Growing with Canvas

This course is designed to offer a guided tour that integrates activities that will help you to become better acquainted with everything this platform has to offer, whether you are a staff member, a new instructor, or an experienced Canvas user looking to learn more.   We’ve adopted a growing theme to keep it fun, and because it fits well – Canvas is always changing, so all users, even your Canvas administrators, are constantly growing to utilize it to the fullest capability!

Effective Teaching Practice

Effective Teaching Practices (ETP) is intended to assist instructors in developing effective, engaging, student-centered lessons. ETP begins with an overview of the importance of lesson planning and then quickly focuses attention on a specific lesson planning model—the BOPPPS—which provides the foundation for the course. This introduction to lesson planning can serve you well regardless of the delivery method you find yourself teaching in.

On completing the course, you will be able to utilize the BOPPPS Lesson Planning Model to develop effective and engaging lessons for students in your classroom. Your learning will culminate in the development of a BOPPPS lesson plan that you will submit, along with a personal reflection, to the course facilitators for review and feedback.

Facilitating Online Learning

Facilitating Online Learning is an online workshop consisting of three self-paced modules and a culminating assessment, designed for instructors who are new to teaching online courses or transitioning from teaching in the classroom to teaching online.
