Expand Canvas skills with Winterfest, spring, and pre-Canvas Day training

Nov 28, 2018 | News, Training

If you are interested in enhancing your Canvas skills for an effective spring semester, Penn State IT Learning and Development has many options to help.

In December, the Penn State training event Winterfest returns with five sessions focused on Canvas.

Canvas Day 2019 in March will focus on best practices. In preparation, there will be several regular training sessions on Canvas as well as Canvas Day pre-conference sessions (see dates below). These sessions will help bring audiences new to Canvas up to speed before attending Canvas Day.

All training sessions listed below will be offered online via Zoom, enabling faculty and staff to participate from anywhere. If a session is full, you may still request it. You will be contacted if space becomes available. Additional sessions may be added based upon waitlist demand.
