PAINTing the Canvas

March has been filled with GOBLINs (traditional and #netnarr surprises), preparing for #OLCInnovate, #Domains17, and planning a new training program called PAINT Canvas. For the last year that I’ve facilitated Canvas training, much of my energy has been spent on-boarding instructors into the new Canvas software while helping them think through how this impacts their course design. Canvas Camp is […]

Web Annotation With Hypothes.is In Canvas Training Session

GOBLIN Returns!

GOBLIN kicked off for the second semester this week. John and I ran four cohorts of this faculty learning community during the Spring 2016 semester and are facilitating two more GOBLIN sections over the next five weeks.

Systems of Cost, Paying the Price – Ch 2 Reflection

Although this chapter provided some much needed context for the broader case of improving how we financially supporting college students, I’m not one that needs much convincing.
