THE CANVAS COWBOY CORRAL- CANVAS COWBOY INNOVATORS FOR MARCH- JEREMY AND SHANNON MAYNARD

Yesterday, March 27 we hosted an innovative March Canvas Cowboy Cookies and Computers showcase. Jeremy and Shannon Maynard, our March Canvas Cowboy Innovators, explained how they created their student employee training Canvas course for the student workers in the HSU library.

This post addresses some highlights and questions from the session.

Of course, as Mary Poppins famously said, “In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun,” and we certainly had lots of fun during the Canvas Cowboy Corral. There were also evidence-based practices that emerged during the peer-to-peer training offered by the Maynards.

In this video Jeremy explains the purpose for their Canvas course design.

The Maynards’ course addresses both vocational and socio-emotional needs of university students, which is a growing trend for university courses. According to Awartani et al., (2008) educational institutions will increasingly be expected to take responsibility for the overall development of students, including their well-being.

Check back for more research-based practices within Canvas auxiliary course integration.

Shout-out for HSU from Digital Learning Day

Tomorrow is Digital Learning Day across the country and Hardin-Simmons University, where I am interim instructional designer, received an online shout-out and website placement for our Canvas Cowboy Innovator Event. “Digital Learning Day is a day to celebrate the great things that digitally happen EVERY Day in classrooms around our country. It is NOT about using digital tools for one day.” -From a DLDay Twitter post.
