Workshops & Training

The Online Learning Program Team hosts workshops on Penn’s instructional technology throughout the year. 

Are you new to teaching with Canvas, or just need a refresher? Bring your laptop to one of our Canvas workshops and be prepared to dive in! You’ll learn how to use basic Canvas tools to customize your course, create and organize your content, and communicate with students. We also offer periodic workshops on other educational technology such as BlueJeans videoconferencing, Poll Everywhere for live, interactive polling during class sessions, and Respondus LockDown Browser for test administration.

Quickstart Guides for Instructional Technology

See what we offer!

The Online Learning Program Team has prepared quickstart guides to some of the instructional technology you may encounter here at the Penn School of Nursing. Get inspired by how other teachers have used live polling to engage their students, watch a video tutorial on how to schedule your first BlueJeans video conference, and begin to imagine the possibilities for building your own online course.
