Part 6: Fall 2017 Labs

83 Top Hat in Canvas with Duncan Carlsmith — 10.25.2017

Duncan Carlsmith

The October 25, 2017 Active Teaching Lab explored Top Hat in Canvas. Duncan Carlsmith shared his experience using Top Hat to engage students and deepen learning. This brownbag-style lab varied from our regular labs in that there was no hands-on lab portion — it simply included a story, demo and then discussion.

Active Teaching Labs are held Fridays from 8:30-9:45am (and every other Thursday from 1-2pm, see events calendar for dates) in room 120, Middleton Building. Check out upcoming labs or read recaps from past labs. To stay informed about upcoming Labs, sign up for regular announcements by sending an email to
