IiL Professional Development

spring 2019 canvas training

Professional development is the process of increasing the abilities of faculty and staff through various educational training and workshop opportunities. The Innovations in Learning team collaborates with departments on campus to provide workshops and training opportunities throughout the year. Those opportunities range anywhere from beginner/advanced D2L & Canvas workshops, classroom technology training, and pedagogical training.

The Innovations in Learning team is currently undertaking the LMS transition from D2L to Canvas, so for the Fall 2018 - Fall 2019 period, professional development training will be on hold until we get all instructors trained in Canvas. After the transition, we will begin to offer more advanced Canvas workshops.
