Join Christin DePouw (Associate Professor, Education & 2021-22 Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Consultant) on Nov. 18, from 1-2 p.m. for a presentation and guided conversation, where we will discuss the role of “self-excavations” (Sealey-Ruiz, 2021) and reflective practice in our teaching. We will consider identities as both personal and group-oriented, imposed and/or chosen, visible and internal. We will also discuss the specific nature of academic identities and how these relate to our understandings of authority, knowledge production and validity, emotion, and embodied experience. We will conclude by connecting these conversations to our dispositions and behaviors as educators.
Join CATL staff on Nov. 15, 3-4 p.m. for a workshop about the WISE feedback technique for providing constructive, encouraging feedback and how it can be applied to your class, regardless of size. Participants will engage with scenarios to practice applying WISE principles.
Come build your syllabi with friends in these workshops where we’ll offer templates, checklists, and snippets to help you set the tone for the semester. Come for some or stay for the whole thing!
Join CATL for a presentation and Q&A session Friday, August 20 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. We’ll be covering the advanced and sometimes “hidden” editing features in Canvas pages, syllabi, assignments, and other areas of Canvas where the Rich Content Editor can be found. We’ll cover layouts, tables, buttons, callouts, linking within and between pages, and doing more with images.
This is a great topic for those who wish to freshen up the overall look and feel of their Canvas site, incorporate new or improved banner images, want to make their content more accessible, are building liquid syllabi, or just want to see more of what Canvas can do!
