Part 5: Spring 2017 Labs
The May 5, 2017 Active Teaching Lab explored peer learning tools in Canvas. Andrea Porter shared how she used the Canvas Groups tool to facilitate peer-to-peer learning in her Pharmacy course. In a 150-student blended course, students are divided into groups of 3 to complete group-specific course assignments including reflections using the discussions area of Canvas as well as a year-long portfolio using GoogleDocs.
