Canvas Training Workshops for Faculty

Beginning in the spring 2017 semester, all Porterville College classes will have a Canvas course site. There are a number of ways in which instructors can get training in how to use Canvas. There is a self-paced, online course called "Canvas Basics Self-Paced". This is a great way to get an introduction to Canvas. It may be all that you need if you will only be using Canvas minimally, or if you are an enthusiastic self-learner. Contact Sarah Phinney if you are interested in the "Canvas Basics Self-Paced" course.

If you would like to take your Canvas knowledge to the next level, we offer a four-week, facilitator led online workshop, "Intermediate Canvas for Instructors". It is recommended that you have either taken the self-paced, "Basics" course or that you have used Canvas to some extent prior to taking this workshop. In this workshop you will complete hands-on activities, and discuss how to use Canvas features amongst your colleagues. Expect to spend about 10 hours a week on the activities in this course. See the schedule, below, for upcoming dates.



Located in the PC Library in room 439, the Technology Learning Center (TLC), is a resource for staff and faculty who would like to further their knowledge and skills with technology. The center also offers some advanced technologies to help faculty and staff prepare resources or connect with students and colleagues. Stop by and check it out!
