Canvas Proficiency Course: Collaboration and Feedback

During this workshop, you will learn to use Canvas to support student collaboration and discussion, organise tutor and peer feedback, and implement and assess various types of assignments. 

In 2020, a year we all remember as one of lockdowns, bad haircuts, and online education, Maastricht University migrated from Blackboard to Canvas. To help teachers get acquainted with the new platform, the university organised Canvas workshops to present its functionalities and their value within PBL.

Whether you could or could not attend those online workshops, you may want to become an even more proficient Canvas user.  Then come to this interactive, face-to-face advanced Canvas workshop! During this workshop, you will learn to use Canvas to support student collaboration and discussion, organise tutor and peer feedback, and implement and assess various types of assignments.  This will help you build a natural online extension of your PBL classroom in Canvas, enriching the learning experience.

This activity will be offered at various times on-site at EDLAB.
