Building Community and Collaborating in a Virtual Classroom [Lab]

Throughout the Building Community and Collaborating workshops we discussed theoretical frameworks and pedagogical strategies aimed at creating inclusive and engaging environments in our online, remote, or hybrid courses. The next step is to apply the strategies discussed and utilize our Canvas tools to create welcoming online spaces, enhance collaboration, and increase student engagement.  During this designated lab time, an instructional designer will review tools in Canvas and be available to assist you as you work on incorporating community building and collaborative aspects in your course design and pedagogy.     

  • Prerequisite: Previous participation in Building Community in a Virtual Classroom and/or Collaborating in a Virtual Classroom Workshops
  • Materials: You’ll need to bring your laptop and have access to a Canvas course shell (either your course shell or a template). You can request a blank Canvas shell to work within via the ITS website.

Facilitator: Dr. Kristen Hidinger, CFE Instructional Designer
