The purpose of the course is to familiarize you with the diversity of resources available to help you learn to use the Canvas LMS. The purpose is also to prepare you to develop a module for your actual course. This course is resource-rich, with access to documents, discussion boards, videos, repositories, and other instructional support content useful in building your course development skills.
This is a competency-based course that focuses on specific best practices that you will use to demonstrate your ability to transform a learning activity by applying digital pedagogy best practices. Through a series of learning activities and collaborative exercises, you'll consider the rationale and purpose of digital pedagogy, critique some common digital transformation models, and evaluate some sample activities. As you engage in reflection and discussion you'll consider the value of digital pedagogy for your blended course, and identify approaches that are most relevant to you.
