Using Canvas to Implement Instructional Strategies and Enrich Your Course Series


Although the majority of courses are being taught face-to-face this semester, there is great value in using the LMS (Learning Management System). When used well, it can extend and enhance the learning experience beyond the classroom. Doing so “is a pedagogical practice of teaching and learning that is convenient, student-centered, and flexible” (Davis & Surajballi, 2014). At the intersection of best practices and technical demos, this workshop series focuses on instructional strategies and how to leverage Canvas accordingly.
