With midterms approaching, join the OTL in a Canvas Coaching session on creating quizzes and exams in Canvas. We will model building a Canvas Quiz and the options available to instructors. This is a great opportunity to open up the conversation between colleagues and hear about what other folks are doing with their online quizzes and exams.

 

Canvas Coaching is a weekly event aimed at supporting faculty in teaching with Canvas. The 30-minute sessions may include a demonstration, informal discussion, and/or Q&A time. Each week focuses on a different topic that will align with your quarter planning. In addition, participants will be provided with the opportunity to sign up for one-on-one consultation support with an Instructional Designer.

The processes of promotion, reappointment, and tenure are consistent drivers of faculty stress, consternation, and insecurity. While faculty accomplishments accrue over years and often emerge through an organic process of growth and scholarly interest, the professional statement provides a strategic opportunity to guide your review committee in their analysis of your work. The statement should highlight important themes, identify patterns of contribution across areas, and offer a general frame for interpreting the breadth of your achievements. In short, it’s your opportunity to tell the powerful story of your work. This workshop will offer strategies for shaping myriad faculty accomplishments into a cohesive structure that will present a strong case for tenure, promotion, or reappointment.
