Required Training for Faculty
We are pleased to launch the Canvas training required for all faculty with a deadline of October 16, 2023 for completion. As discussed via Faculty Senate processes, we have developed a UHD-specific version of the Growing with Canvas at UHD training that can provide foundational Canvas knowledge for our faculty.
It is available in your Canvas space when you log in to Canvas. Note: Sometimes this training course is getting "demoted" or removed from your course list in Canvas. If you do not see the GWC training, please follow the instructions from the TTLC newsletter to find it in your courses or ask for help at TTLChelp@uhd.edu.
The training is set up as a series of six modules, each with a quiz; in addition to the Canvas technology covered, we have included some information on accessibility and best practices. Many thanks to our amazing TTLC and CTLE teams for their work on this project!
Topics in Growing with Canvas at UHD:
- Module 1: Navigation & Communication
- Module 2: Customizing Your Course
- Module 3: Creating Activities & Assessments
- Module 4: Grading & Evaluating Student Work
- Module 5: Collaboration & Sharing
- Module 6: Completion: Reviewing Key Concepts
To satisfy the training requirement, faculty should read the introduction and complete and pass the "Key Concepts Quiz" in each module with a score of 80% or higher. While we encourage you to work through the material in each module, you can choose to go directly to each of the quizzes. There is no limit on the number of times you can attempt the quizzes. Please see FAQs below for additional information.
