In this session, Georgetown faculty and instructors will explore why and how  Canvas can enhance learning and engagement in face-to-face courses. Topics covered will include designing a Canvas environment that is both easily navigable and visually appealing, as well as integrating Georgetown supported tools for student engagement. The session will focus on the “why,” that is, we will consider the pedagogical questions behind course organization and tools for student engagement. Facilitators will showcase a range of examples in Canvas across disciplines, course level, and size.                           
Participants will begin the preliminary steps to achieve the following learning goals:

  • Explain the pedagogical benefits of using technology to enhance learning and engagement in face-to-face courses
  • Explore pedagogical strategies for using Canvas to enhance learning and engagement in face-to-face courses
  • Explain the benefits and challenges of using Canvas in face-to-face courses
  • Explain the importance of careful organization and design when using Canvas to supplement face-to-face courses
