What is the “Level Up” Design Series?
The Level Up Canvas Course Design Series is an opportunity for Chapman faculty and instructors to take their Canvas course design to the next level. After an incredibly rapid transition from Blackboard to Canvas, this series will open up additional considerations and best practices to deliver truly engaging digital learning experiences to Chapman students. Adam Kuntz, Principal Learning Consultant at Instructure, will be facilitating this series.
What will I learn I don’t already know?
