So you spend three months building a course only to find that it doesn’t fit your needs anymore. Or, you suddenly are granted an opportunity which requires repurposing of your course materials. In this workshop, we focus on Canvas features that support just-in-time course design so you can adapt quickly to meet the changing demands of your audiences (and keep your sanity).

Some Things to Think About Before the Session . . .


Consider the types of challenges that you've experienced when teaching your course - challenges with learners? with course design? with a specific tool/area in the course?


We'll explore these various situations that arise, and then discuss and share solutions during the session. Take home ideas that you may find useful when teaching your own courses, some that you may never have even thought of!
