Do you want to create awesome designs from scratch in as little as a few minutes? This workshop will give you an overview of Canva, a tool that allows you to create high quality flyers, images, graphics and more with an easy to use drag and drop interface. You can use this tool to create designs for your class, slides, your Canvas course, or to promote your upcoming event. See for yourself at canva.com!
In this hands-on workshop, you'll learn how to create a variety of assignments, apply Grading Rubrics, including CEPH Outcomes, manage assignment Due Dates and Availability Dates, use SpeedGrader on Canvas, and leverage newly released GradeBook features to avoid grading headaches for your courses.
Classroom response systems like PollEverywhere are used to poll students and gather immediate feedback in response to questions posed by instructors. Research suggests that the use of CRS is associated with increased student engagement, increased learning, and better student outcomes. Strategies for using CRS in the classroom fall into three main categories: monitoring the classroom, real-time evaluation of student comprehension, and peer instruction. In this session we will discuss practical ways to implement each strategy through using PollEverywhere. (This workshop is eligible for 1 Continuing Education Credit (CPE) credit.)
