Celebrate the move from Moodle to Canvas with your colleagues at the Winter “Canvas and Wine” Reception on Thursday, January 9th, from 3pm to 5pm in the LSB 118 & 121. Use this time to share and learn Canvas tips while enjoying hors d'oeuvres, wine and other beverages. Faculty and staff who are instructors of record are invited to attend this event.

Bring your laptops as Academic Technology Specialists from the Center for Academic Technology (CAT) will be on hand to assist with any last minute Canvas tasks such as publishing a course, posting a syllabus, moving content from Moodle to Canvas, and so on. CAT will also provide a Canvas course checklist so you can make sure you have the basics covered in time for the first day of spring classes.
