Arts Remote Teaching Consultations & Canvas Template

Arts remote teaching support
As we approach Summer 2020 Term 1, Arts ISIT is offering course consultations and Canvas templates to prepare instructors for remote teaching.

 

Remote Teaching Consultations

Educational technologists from Arts ISIT and learning designers from CTLT with experience in online course design are available for virtual consultations to answer any questions you might have as you prepare to teach remotely.

To set up a consultation, please use the form below to send us your questions and we will respond with a time and virtual meeting link.

Remote Teaching Template & Demo

Arts ISIT has created both a Arts Remote Teaching Template, downloadable through Canvas Commons, and a viewable Remote Teaching Demo Canvas course.

The Template provides a blank structure for online courses, as well as useful materials like student resources and surveys, which can be imported as-is into your course shell. See instructions below on how to import the Template.

The Demo is a model Canvas course with an example course schedule, sample assessments, and instructor resources for online teaching, such as recommended strategies, helpful tips, and syllabus templates. The Demo can be viewed through self-enrolment in Canvas:
