Learning Technology Group: Canvas Panel Discussion

Time: 1/17/2013 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Location: VU567

Members of our campus community are welcome to join the "Learning Technology Group" monthly discussion aimed at increasing our campus-wide understanding and use of technology as a teaching tool. All Western faculty, staff, and interested students are welcome to attend.

This panel discussion will feature faculty who were involved in Western’s fall pilot of Canvas. Canvas is a new learning management system being proposed to replace Blackboard. The panelists will address characteristics of Canvas that they liked and didn’t like. Immediately following the panel discussion, beginning at 1:00 pm, will be a demonstration of Canvas.

The Learning Technology Group at Western is an ongoing collaboration of Academic Technology and User Services, working with the Center for Instructional Innovation and Assessment, to engage faculty in implementing and evaluating new technologies for teaching.
