    Canvas is Seattle University's Learning Management System (LMS). 

    Third Faculty/Staff Canvas User Forum – Challenges and Opportunities

    Canvas User Forum

    Come for the free lunch. Stay to learn from colleagues as they share innovations and best practices using Canvas in their courses.

    Seating is limited - RSVP 

    At the third Canvas User Forum, faculty presenters will share how they addressed common questions in teaching and learning through innovative uses of the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS). What opportunities does the technology provide to improve teaching and learning? Have there been unexpected results in the application of technology – both challenging and remarkable? 

    Each faculty presenter will share their experience and introduce ongoing questions to the group for general discussion. Hands-on workshops will be held in the weeks following the forum to help interested faculty with “how-to” logistics of implementing use of particular tools.

    Quick-Start Tutorial, In-Person Workshops & Labs, Department Workshops & Individual Consultations

    Support is available to faculty for efficient and engaging use of Canvas. Please go to the Seattle University Canvas Help Center to sign up for a quick-start guided tutorial, in-person small group introductory workshops, rotating labs covering specific uses of Canvas, and individual consultations to address specific needs.
