Those interested in attending the second annual Canvas Day can review the agenda, which features four types of sessions in a relaxed atmosphere that allows attendees to customize their conference experience. The event will be held Friday, March 17 at the Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center in University Park. The event is offered at no charge to attendees.

The format of the Canvas Day schedule will enable attendees to choose activities that fit their Canvas learning needs, and will enable them to come and go as they please. The four types of sessions will have something to offer for Canvas users from beginner to expert and include:

  • Expo – A room with numerous topics in a “come and go” casual setting. Each room has themes but specific topics will be addressed by informal discussions.
  • Hands-on – A formal session led by a facilitator that provides participants information in the form of training.
  • Demo – A formal session led by a presenter to provide a demo.
  • Consultations – Provide participants an opportunity for one-on-one support with expert on Canvas. Registration for these consultations is required.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop or personal device such as an iPad or tablet as these will be needed for hands-on sessions and consultations.

Attendees can register for the morning, afternoon, or entire day. Over lunch, which is provided for free to attendees, there will be a talk on the Canvas Roadmap at Penn State.

Along with the Canvas-focused activities, Canvas Day will be held in a relaxed, fun atmosphere where attendees can enjoy games and light refreshments throughout the day.

The last semester that courses can be taught in ANGEL is Summer II session. By fall 2017, all Penn State courses using an LMS must be taught in Canvas, so make sure you are prepared by registering for Canvas Day.
