Are you using a Canvas tool or feature that is helping to create a better experience for your students?

Penn State Teaching and Learning with Technology (TLT) is giving you the opportunity to share your best practices with your colleagues at Canvas Day on Friday, March 20, 2020, at the Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center. 

Enjoy a scoop of Penn State Berkey Creamery ice cream at the One Cool Thing mini-session and vote for the “coolest” presentation. The presenter with the most votes will win an iPad. Stay until the end of the session and one lucky attendee will be randomly selected to also win an iPad.

Submit your One Cool Thing by Friday, February 21, 2020 and the 2020 Canvas Day planning committee will select the best ideas to showcase. 

Free for all Penn State faculty and staff, register for Canvas Day 2020 to attend morning and afternoon sessions focusing on new updates and upcoming enhancements in Canvas.

This invaluable networking event brings faculty and instructional designers together to share and explore innovative new ways to advance learning outcomes for students.

In preparation for Canvas Day, below are some pre-conference training sessions provided by Penn State IT Learning and Development to help bring audiences new to Canvas up to speed.

All training sessions listed below will be offered online via Zoom, enabling faculty and staff to participate from anywhere. If a session is full, you may still request it. You will be contacted if space becomes available. Additional sessions may be added based upon waitlist demand.
