Course Description: In this course, students will explore evidence-based methods for fostering student achievement by delivering engaging instruction using instructional technology, specifically a learning management system. Participants will explore the utilization of Canvas LMS's built-in tools to encourage creative thinking, critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication by focusing on activities in John Hattie's "Zone of Desired Effects."
Canvas learners will participate in the course asynchronously over 6 weeks, with a summative project that will demonstrate using Canvas to engage learners. Participants will have to complete three core modules and two elective modules. In addition to the course work in the Canvas course, educators will have to participate in one (at minimum) live Canvas workshop and schedule (at minimum two) 1:1 sessions with the Canvas Principal Learning Consultant.
Prerequisite: It is expected that participants have a basic understanding of Canvas, and have a Canvas account with their school district or AKLearns.
