“Teacher stories - Educational solutions in Canvas”

Blended on the edge of distance - Björn Kjellgren (KTH) shows the course room for “Intercultural competence”. How can you design a course room in Canvas with many students from different places and teachers in another city? With few close to no physical meetings in a course the demands became higher than usual on including and motivating structure in Canvas. Björn talks about the challenges, solutions and how to evaluate and think forward. You can participate by asking questions and exchange experiences with other teachers. 

Björn Kjellgren, Associate Professor at The language and communication unit and Director of Studies for the Department of Learning in Engineering Sciences, ITM. Björn has been using Canvas for several years.

Target group: Teachers and administrators at KTH who work with Canvas/e-learning. The seminar will be held in English. Monday 17/2 at 12.15 - 13.00. Everyone who wants to attend IRL (in the South East Gallery) needs to register, no later than 17/2.

Lunch n’ Learn seminars - in the KTH Library and online

The seminars are aimed at those (primarily KTH-teachers and employees) who are interested in e-learning and want to know more about KTH's digital learning environment. The seminars are held in the South East Gallery, KTH Library. They are streamed (YouTube)  and recorded on the day so you can participate directly online, ask questions in the chat or watch the recording later. The sandwich and drink is served from 12 and the seminar takes place between 12:15-13.

Contact and suggestions for upcoming Lunch n' Learn

We also want the seminars to be a forum for KTH's teachers to share knowledge and experience of working in Canvas, focusing on educational solutions. Are you a teacher and want to share something you have done in Canvas? It can be examples of something that you think became really good when it comes to course design. Or something that has been more challenging and difficult that you have worked with and succeeded. We believe that both large and small examples can inspire. Please contact us if you would like to hold a Lunch n 'Learn seminar. Then we can discuss ideas and possible arrangements together.

If you only want to submit suggestions and wishes on the topic for the upcoming Lunch n 'Learn, you can also contact us. Email: e-learning@kth.se .
