Come learn about our "speed networking" event that helped our instructors learn about Canvas, our new LMS. Traditional workshops have their place, but this event allowed faculty to listen to short bursts of information explaining the highlights of Canvas's bells and whistles. The speed-networking format let faculty drop in and learn a little or a lot. The event, held at lunchtime in the student center, met faculty "where they live." We intentionally focused on the "why should I care about this tool" not the how-to steps. Host your own event with the advice gained from this session.
OUTCOMES: Identify three best practices * Express one idea about how future events could be improved * Produce one idea for how you can create your own event
