Summer Canvas Training

Summer 2020 Canvas Training

Canvas will be the platform used at Chapman University for Fall 2020. It is important that all faculty receive adequate training in Canvas course design due to the uncertain nature of our fall semester. Educational Technology Services (ETS) is excited to guide you.

The Canvas Course Design training is centered on pedagogical concerns. There are modules on Backwards Design, Course Learning Goals/Objectives/Outcomes, Accessible Teaching, Fostering Student Collaboration, Creating Assessments, Multimedia Assignments, Rubrics, etc.  There’s also content about Online and “Hy-Flex” teaching to help our faculty prepare for Fall.  We have 5 full-time and 4 part-time staff members coordinating those cohort experiences, many of whom have classroom experience and/or training in Instructional Design. 

If you feel you have already trained or have adequate experience, please fill out this form so we can know your skill level and (perhaps) ask you to mentor others: Checklist for those who have previous Canvas experience.

Options for full-time faculty summer training include the following. (Part-time faculty will be trained in August.) Please scroll to the bottom to sign up for one "hike" time slot. Contact [email protected] if you have questions about these options.

  • Group Intensive Hike: Canvas Course Design Cohort Intensive (~15 hours; fast-paced; learn from each other and a facilitator)

  • Solo Hike: Canvas Course Design Independent Study (~15 hours; self-paced; lightly facilitated)

  • Hike with Trail Guides: Basic Technology Training and Canvas Course Design (15-30 hours+; strong support from tech staff and Canvas professionals; for those who don't feel comfortable with their tech expertise and need extra help)

Note: Canvas courses for fall 2020 will populate 60 days prior to start of term. That means you won't see your fall 2020 courses until end June, early July. If you would like an empty course (or courses!) in Canvas to start building, please request a Master Course.
