Less than three weeks left to submit your One Cool Thing for Canvas Day 2018

Feb 9, 2018 | News

What Canvas tool or feature did you discover that helps you create a better experience for your students? Here’s your chance to share your find with your Penn State colleagues!

Canvas Day will be held Friday, March 16, at the Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center. During Canvas Day, we will have an open session called “One Cool Thing.” For two hours, a room at the Penn Stater will become the One Cool Thing Room. In this room, Penn State faculty and staff will do mini-sessions on interesting Canvas tools and features and unique ways to use them for teaching and learning.

So how do you get in on this and share your One Cool Thing with the Penn State Canvas community? Easy! Just fill out and submit this simple form at https://tinyurl.com/1CoolThingForm by Friday, February 23. From there, the Canvas Day planning team will select the best stuff to show off in the One Cool Thing Room.

Along with the One Cool Thing Room, Canvas Day will feature training sessions, workshops by Ryan Seilhamer of University of Central Florida and representatives of Instructure (creators of Canvas), one-on-one consultations, breakout sessions, networking opportunities, and more. A delicious Penn Stater lunch will be provided and there is no charge for attendees. More information on the day’s schedule will be forthcoming.
