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.
