About The User Group Meeting

Our annual Canvas User Group provides all types of users in the region an opportunity to hear about how colleagues are implementing Canvas on their campuses. In addition to being a valuable networking opportunity, usergroup attendees typically leave with new ideas that fit well with their institution's strategy for leveraging their LMS. The fifth-annual Canvas User Group will feature speakers from various Canvas institutions and will allow attendees to share and learn about new ideas, best practices, and innovative approaches to using the system. There will be time built into the schedule for networking and small group discussions.

 

Unconference

This year, we are changing up the User Group meeting and approaching it as an unconference. Based on feedback from last year, we thought it best to provide more opportunities for networking and free-flowing, like-minded conversations. 

 

Possible session topics include:
- Mobile teaching and learning using the Canvas Student and Teacher apps
- Onboarding new faculty, and enticing current faculty, with all that Canvas has to offer
- Going further with the Rich Content Editor with HTML and LTIs
- Optimizing a Canvas and G Suite Integration
- Canvas for on-ground classrooms
- Sharing best practices

 

For more information, please see the CUG NERCOMP microsite and please let me know if you have any questions. With so many wonderful things happening in New England around Canvas, mobile learning and keeping students and faculty engaged, I hope you will consider joining us and adding your voice to the day's sessions!
