HumFlex: CTL Fall 2021 Workshops

What is HumFlex? Disruption and change is the new normal. What can we do to keep deep learning and thinking for our students and ourselves moving forward? HumFlex is a flexible approach to learning, teaching, design, and technology that supports educators (and students!) in the adaptation to new contexts as part of an ongoing, critical reflection of one’s practice as it evolves within the changing higher education landscape.

HumFlex programming supports campus educators in the intellectual exploration of teaching and learning across modalities in ways that allow for flexible instruction and just-in-time learning that can adapt and shift to changing contexts. This includes integrating effective practices that engage students and build community by leveraging technologies to cultivate meaningful learning experiences.

Using Canvas Analytics to Help Students Be Successful

If we only had more information sooner to support the success of our students. Now we do! Canvas New Analytics is an amazing visual dashboard that educators have at their fingertips. Track and analyze student performance and behavior; provide critical, timely communication that can make a difference in a student’s success in the course, e.g., identifying students who may need additional support in a critical time period; and view students’ engagement that can inform timely design and pedagogical choices that make a difference in their learning.
