CANCELLED – Active Teaching Lab: Canvas for Large Classes

Friday, March 27, 2020 @ 8:30 am - 9:45 am


*This Active Teaching Lab has been cancelled. You can receive updates about future labs by joining our listserv by emailing join-activeteaching@lists.wisc.edu.*


Several Canvas features can be optimized to easily manage large classes, either for the lecture hall or in discussion groups. This lab will discuss digital strategies for attendance, organizing students into groups, effective online discussion spaces via Piazza, and embedding content with Google Drive streamline information sharing and access.

Walk-ins welcome but registration appreciated to ensure refreshments for all. Bring your laptop or mobile device for hands-on experimentation. Have opinions or experience on the topic? Sign up to contribute! It’s nice for us to know there are a few folks in the room who can help us answer questions. And we promise you’ll leave with a deeper understanding yourself!

Active Teaching Labs are a collaboration between DoIT Academic Technology’s Faculty Engagement service and the UW-Madison Teaching Academy, with sessions held Thursdays from 1-2pm and Fridays from 8:30-9:45am in the Middleton Building (1305 Linden Dr.), room 120. Check out upcoming Labs or read the recaps from past Labs. We build interdisciplinary conversations that are more emergent than a presenter and more dynamic than a panel — a conversation with colleagues sharing challenges, solutions, and experiments on topics selected by a variety of campus stakeholders.

Sign up for regular Lab announcements by sending an email to join-activeteaching@lists.wisc.edu.
