The first Coffee and Canvas event was held on Friday 17th August in the Student Guidance Centre Hub.  It was the first chance for many of our Early Adopters to hear from their colleagues on how their Canvas courses are progressing.

The first speaker was Ruth Craig from the Institute of Professional and Legal Studies.  She talked about why she wanted to get involved in the Early Adopter, and how she hoped Canvas would help her to engage her students this semester.

Next up was Dr Viviane Gravey who talked through the challenge of designing a module on Canvas when you’re teaching as part of a large team.

There were a number of important updates from the project team on when Early Adopters can copy their development courses into the courses that will be available to students.
