CSUCI Faculty Preparation for Canvas

Blog Post created by Jill Leafstedt on Aug 31, 2017

I thought I would take a minute to share our approach to preparing faculty for the move to Canvas. We are in our opt-in semester and it is going really well. We currently have 56% of our faculty with published courses in Canvas for fall semester. We started with a small pilot in spring 2017. Fall 2017 faculty had the choice to opt-in, and in spring 2018 we will be fully transitioned to Canvas. We have been very intentional in over communicating and untethering all our support. Our untethered approach guides us to assure we can reach all faculty, not just those that are on campus and attend workshops. To learn more, please see this post on EdSurge. For Canvas in particular we made sure faculty could learn online, in-person, and on the go. You can most of our work on the following pages.
