We warmly invite you to connect with colleagues and learn from your peers on the meaningful ways in which they are leveraging Canvas and other technology in all modalities. The summit is designed with busy faculty in mind with sessions ranging in length from quick hits (5 minutes) to deeper dives (20 minutes).   

The Teaching and Technology Summit will feature faculty presentations on a variety of topics, ranging from teaching with TikTok to using “easter eggs” in Canvas. Stay tuned for a full agenda in the coming days! 

The Division of Online and Strategic Learning provides support and assessment for technology-enhanced teaching and learning for on-campus, online, and blended courses and programs. Our aim is to establish an institute of good practice that all faculty will find useful, formidable, and essential to their aspirations of excellence in teaching.
