Around Campus

Upcoming events and campus opportunities sponsored by WisCEL and UW-Madison teaching and learning partners.


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
