This course introduces you to how to teach using the Canvas learning management system by Instructure. You will learn how the system works through a series of curated readings and recall what you have learned through formative quizzes. You will also practice what you have learned through a series of hands-on exercises focused on the subject you teach. Finally you will reflect on the tools in Canvas through a shared discussion with other participants sharing this part of our professional journey.
