We invite Middlebury faculty to join us for a series of mini-workshops to kick off the fall semester! Workshop topics help you to explore digital pedagogy theory and practice in a number of ways, including designing assessments for learner variability, student-centered course design with Canvas, detecting and debunking misinformation on the web, and creating effective presentations. View other workshop descriptions and sign up to attend.
Student-Centered Course Design using Canvas
Facilitator: Heather Stafford, DLINQ
Date: Thursday, October 25, 2018, 8-9 am PT/11 am – noon ET
Location: online (Zoom)
In this interactive session, we will examine different methods for utilizing Canvas in ways that amplify the student experience and support student-centered learning. We will explore ways of minimizing the cognitive load that students face through thoughtful Canvas course site design, and learn about Canvas tools and teaching techniques that incorporate student voice.
Prior to the session general info about your course will be requested (syllabus) so that the session is tailored to meet the needs of the pedagogy for your discipline. The workshop will include the opportunity to do some hands-on work with your Canvas site.
Join us to see how thoughtful course design can aid your pedagogical goals.
