Support for Spring 2021 Preparation

Please join us for two weeks of professional development opportunities that will take place the weeks of Dec. 14-18 and Jan. 4-8. The primary goal of these weeks is to support instructors as they continue preparing for the spring 2021 semester.

Opportunities include the following:

  • Workshops on new features of Canvas, including Studio and Quizzes
  • A sequence of four progressive workshops to help instructors organize their courses using the BGSU Canvas Template (led by instructional designers from Instructure)
  • Sessions designed to help instructors engage with students more effectively in hybrid, remote and online courses
  • Hands-on training with ITS staff that will take place in classrooms around campus
  • Opportunities for one-on-one consultations with instructional designers from BGSU and Instructure

Most sessions require sign-up, and space for some sessions may be limited.
