How do I log Canvas Training Hours?
this is a media comment
This assignment takes the form of a diary. To be considered for the CAT program, you must deliver and document 6 hours of synchronous Canvas training to your local learners (face-to-face or via web conferencing). Each training should be at least 1 hour in duration. Number of attendees is not as important as the process you go through to prepare for and reflect on the training (see below). These trainings can be delivered to a single person, as long as they are scheduled first and you prepare for your time together using the same process you would use for a larger group.
After each training session, please answer the following questions in your diary. Each diary entry should be at least 1 page short (somewhere between 500-1000 words). You are encouraged to answer these questions on your blog, if you have one, or tweet about your experiences with the hashtag #CATprogram.
- When did my training take place (date & time) and how many attended?
- What questions did I ask beforehand to help me understand the needs of my learners?
- What were my stated outcomes for learners and how did my training outline reflect that?
- How successful were my learners in achieving those outcomes?
- What did I learn from my training experience and what could I do better next time?
Submit your diary in the format that is most convenient for you: Word Doc, Google Doc, Blog Post, and Text Entry submissions are all welcome.
OPTIONAL: In a separate file upload submission to this assignment, you are welcome to upload any related documents (i.e. the outline for your training, posters or announcements you used to publicize the session, presentation slides, etc.).
Canvas Training Hours must be logged during the 12 month period prior to the application deadline (i.e. between January 1, 2012 - December 31, 2012 for the December 31, 2012 deadline OR between July 1, 2012 - June 30, 2013 for the June 30, 2013 deadline).
