Update on 01/03/2022

The original blog posts about the Canvas Jumpstart Series indicated that the event would be hybrid. However, the workshops will be virtual only due to water damage repairs in Cooper Library.

Canvas Jumpstart Series

This series of workshops is for new and returning instructors using Canvas or any Clemson-supported learning technology to teach. So, with your computer at the ready, join us in person or via Zoom to prepare your Canvas course site for the new semester.

 Who Should Attend

Any new or returning instructors. This includes full-time instructors, part-time instructors, and graduate assistant instructors.

Attending the Workshops

  • Attend in person in Cooper 416 (The Brown Room) or virtually through Zoom.
  • Register for which days to attend, or sign up for all three!
  • Sessions are recorded; if you cannot attend, you can still view the session on your own time. All registrants will receive a link to all three session recordings once the videos have been edited for length and captioning.

Presentation – Online Teaching Strategies for Linguistically Diverse Learners

Teaching a linguistically diverse student population in an online setting requires strategies that complement the specific modality of instruction while providing unique support for students that are still developing English proficiency. Register for this presentation to learn about frameworks and strategies that will best support this student population in an online learning environment. 

Facilitated by Yamil Ernesto Ruiz, Quality Matters Coordinator. 

A Zoom link will be emailed to registered participants, at least 24 – 48 hours prior to the day of the event. This session will be recorded and all registered participants will receive a link to the recording. Contact James Butler with any questions about this session.
