Using Non-CRN Canvas “Courses” to Provide Targeted Academic Content to Students
From Adam Cohen
People most often use Canvas as a home for formal course content, but it has an even broader capacity to support students' learning when we think outside of the box. In this presentation, Susan Landrum will demonstrate how non-CRN Canvas "courses" can be used to create targeted academic content for students, such as supplemental modules that can be assigned to multiple courses; orientation mini-courses introducing students to the basic academic skills they will need for their program; and other types of academic skills instruction.
· identify possible opportunities within their own programs where non-CRN Canvas "courses" could be used effectively to provide targeted instruction.
· explain why asynchronous mini-courses can be used to develop ever-green content that has multiple applications.
· apply what they learn from this session to design their own asynchronous mini-courses.
· explain how applying Universal Design for Learning Principles to non-CRN courses will make course content more accessible for all students.
