The Wisconsin Collaboratory for Enhanced Learning (WisCEL) fosters instructional innovation, active learning, and high-quality teaching and learning opportunities by providing instructional resources, technology and support in multi-use student-centered learning environments on the UW-Madison campus.


  What’s New at WisCEL

WisCEL will be releasing a simplified application and streamlined approval process beginning with our Fall 2019 application round, and we are expecting to open those applications soon.

UW – Madison is transitioning to Canvas, a learning management system designed to create a more intuitive and efficient platform for students and instructors to access specific course information and learning aids. If you are interested in learning more about Canvas and how it can be used to best suit the needs of your course, the University offers several workshops to introduce Canvas features and applications. Some of these workshops include:

    • Canvas Demonstration: What is Canvas
    • Getting Started with Canvas
    • Teaching Effectively in Canvas: Designing for Social Learning
    • Managing Grades in Canvas
    • Canvas Open Lab
