Preparing for the Transition

There are some housekeeping items you can do now to help smooth the transition to Canvas when the time comes to migrate your courses. Even if you won't be teaching in Canvas until Fall 2019, it's not too early to start thinking about your migration. UWSP has close to 4000 courses that need to get moved into Canvas.

Migration Cleanup

The Center for Inclusive Teaching and Learning (CITL) is offering a number of migration preparation cleanup sessions throughout Spring and Summer 2018.  Please check the training page for dates, times and sign up information.  Docmentation from these sessions is provided below.

Think about a revamp

Now is a great time to consider reorganizing the course content you provide online. If you'd like to pursue better online teaching practices, add collaborative projects, or improve the organization of your course materials, CITL staff are available to help.

CITL offers a five-part intensive institute designed to provide you with the tools, the time, and the collegial support to really dig in and design, or re-design, your course. You can learn more about the Course Design Institute, or contact the CITL at
