Event description

Description

The discussion board feature in Canvas allows for asynchronous communication between students and faculty as either an extension of an in-class discussion or as weekly discussion for an online class. This session addresses strategies for designing questions/prompts to promote active learning and improve student engagement throughout the term.

In this session, we'll cover:

  • Creative discussion board ideas (bring your own as well), including video and audio options.
  • Discussion board creation in Canvas, including attaching discussion board rubric.
  • Easy and efficient grading using Canvas’ Speedgrader feature.


Special Note:

Instructors are encouraged to bring their own laptop computers. Academic Technology will have limited Dell PC laptops on hand as well.

Important - This 1-hour focused session is intended for those instructors who have already attended the Canvas Basics training session. If you need to attend the Canvas Basics training session - email canvaslms@colum.edu for the next available dates.
