Using Canvas to Teach Career and Technical Education
with John Monda
This four-week course which yields sixty in-service plan points and meets virtually through Zoom will provide a valuable opportunity for you to learn the technical aspects of canvas through building a course driven by the curriculum framework of your program. The technical aspects of the course will range from creating a profile, courses, and announcements with multi-media, to using the gradebook, calendar, and commons, to integrating external applications such as Office 365, Google Drive, and embedding learning tools like Quizlet and Kahoot.
Each class is divided up into three segments. Prior to each class, you will work through a module made up of training videos and guides that will build your technical understanding of canvas. During each class, you will use the technical aspects learned while watching the training videos and reviewing the guides to build a course driven by your curriculum framework. After each class, you will meet virtually with other students in the class who are at your skill level to complete assignments that will solidify the technical concepts you learned in the training videos and guides, as well as applied in the prior class.
Upon completion of this course, you will have learned a systematic approach to building modules driven by the standards and benchmarks of your program’s curriculum framework. You will learn how to create modules made up of pages, files, assignments, discussions, and quizzes. You will learn how to build learning mastery paths into these modules that use rubrics and outcomes to assess student performance and differentiate learning opportunities for students within modules. You will walk away from this course with the confidence needed to effectively use canvas to teach career and technical education through either a face-to-face, hybrid, or distance education model.
