SPECIAL GUEST: Workshops on Change Management & Teaching Online Led by Sam Christ, Canvas Learning Consultant

Sam Christ, Canvas Learning Consultant and Online Learning Expert

The classroom as we know it is changing, and for many, the abrupt shift to online delivery has upended courses and teaching strategies that took years to build. Join special guest Sam Christ, Canvas Learning Consultant, to learn how to best deal with that change and use technology to make life easier as you navigate the online environment.

Workshops will offer faculty a chance to network with others dealing with changes at Jefferson. You will walk away with best practices and tips to use Canvas, the university’s new learning management system, to adapt to the online environment without re-building your courses from scratch.  

Workshop descriptions are outlined below. To register, click a workshop title or visit our website.
