Aligning Process to Values: Transitioning to Canvas
Concurrent Session 1
In 2021, OLC’s Institute for Professional Development began transitioning our workshops and programs from Moodle to Canvas. Seeing this as an opportunity to transform our offerings, we collaborated with an advisory council consisting of internal and external stakeholders and used a values-driven approach to inform our DLE course redesign. Join us for this Conversation Not Presentation Featured session.
