Recipes for Leaders: Workshop Series for Instructional and Tech Admins

"Recipes for Leaders" text with an illustration of a recipe book, blender, and mixer

Virtual Virginia and Canvas will host Recipes for Leaders, a series of professional learning workshops featuring best practices and free tools for instructional and technology leaders at Virginia’s public schools and divisions to use in the statewide learning management system (LMS).

The instructional administrators’ workshops will focus on best practices for site-based and instructional leaders within the Canvas LMS. Participants will have access to a template that they can customize to create a school or division “hub” for internal communication with faculty and staff within their Canvas LMS instance. During the workshops, participants will be able to create their hub with guidance from Canvas principal learning consultant KC Testerman, who will be on hand to answer questions. The instructional administrators’ workshops are ideal for principals, assistant principals, ITRTs/ITCs, counselors, student services personnel, or division coordinators/instructional leaders.

The technology leaders’ workshops will guide participants in becoming comfortable in the role of Canvas administrator while highlighting best practices for the day-to-day administration of a school or division’s Canvas LMS instance. Canvas principal learning consultant Dave Dick will lead participants in hands-on sessions on planning, organization, theme design, naming conventions, stakeholder communication, support, and training within a school or division’s LMS instance. The technology administrators’ workshops are ideal for ITRTs/ITCs, Canvas administrators, and technology leaders.

Registration is required for each individual session within the workshop series, with two times available for each session.
