The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) invites Georgia Tech faculty members to participate in its 2018 Teaching with Technology Summer Institute on the theme of “Painting on the New Canvas”. The four-day institute (July 10-13, 2018) will explore a pedagogical approach to the integration of technologies into curriculum to support effective teaching and enhance student learning. During the institute, faculty will have an opportunity to work with learning technology specialists from CTL, as well as peers across disciplines, to investigate ways of leveraging the potential of Canvas, Georgia Tech’s new learning management system.
What can I expect?
The institute will consist of a mix of small-group and large-group sessions, as well as individual work time, facilitated by the learning technology specialists from CTL. Participants will engage in discussions and hands-on workshop activities to learn how to best utilize various tools in Canvas to build a course that will facilitate active learning, collaborative learning, and effective assessment (see the summer institute schedule for more details).
How does it differ from Canvas training?
Please note that this program is uniquely different from, and not a substitute for, the Canvas training offered by the Office of Information Technology (OIT). If you intend to learn how to use the tools in Canvas, we recommend you consider attending the Canvas training sessions (see http://canvas.gatech.edu/canvas-training-options for details) prior to attending the institute. The institute is focused on enabling faculty to build a course in Canvas by creating interactive course content, engaging course activities, and effective assessments that align with their specific course goals and objectives.
Is this for me?
No matter whether you are a novice or an expert in using Canvas, please come and join us to leverage this opportunity of rethinking about how you teach with technology and getting your course ready in Canvas for Fall 2018!
