  • UNM ABQ Center for Teaching & Learning (CTL) is offering multiple week-long workshops called "Bridge to Canvas". Here is info from the CTL website:

    "This week-long course (Wednesday to Wednesday) will be an orientation to Canvas at UNM. By the end of the course, instructors will be able to locate, create, and manipulate content in UNM Canvas. The course will be facilitated by an instructional designer and there will be an optional synchronous meeting. Synchronous meetings will be held on a Monday (see options below) and will be recorded. Instructors enrolled in the course will be able to post questions ahead of the meeting, as well. You’ll receive a reminder email the day before the course begins. If you have any questions about your registration, please contact Raquel Gallegos ( Note: This course offering is dependent on Blackboard migrated course content and Canvas temporary shells being available. If those are not available by your chosen start date, we'll reach out to you to get you rescheduled to a later session."
