On Tuesday, Sept. 8, the University of Maryland will launch a new university calendar that will streamline and replace the FYI and Free Stuff @ UMD calendars. Beginning Sept. 8, you will be able to submit your events to the new campus calendar for review and approval, much like the current process for FYI and Free Stuff @ UMD. On Sept. 8, if you visit this website, you will automatically be redirected to the new calendar. In addition, a new weekly email called UMD This Week will launch on Sept. 8, replacing the daily FYI email. UMD This Week will be delivered at the beginning of every week and will highlight top upcoming events. The email will include details on how to access the new calendar and how to submit events for approval. Questions? Email UMDevents@umd.edu.
When: Friday, November 09, 2012 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Where: Patuxent Building 0120
Event Type(s): Forum
Over the course of the current Fall semester, 67 faculty have been participating in a Canvas Pilot program. This panel discussion will allow you the opportunity to hear from three faculty members on their experiences in the new system. Dr. Marcio Oliveira from the Department of Kinesiology, Dr. Melanie Kill from the Department of English, and Dr. Quint Gregory from the Department of Art History and Archaeology will comprise the panel and be available to answer questions and share best practices and considerations when making the transition.
This is a great opportunity for instructors to bring their ideas and questions to an open forum where we can discuss and learn from each other.
No registration is required. Light refreshments will be provided.
This event is open for all faculty and staff who enjoy participating in a lively discussion. Join us on Friday, November 9th in Patuxent Building Room 0120.
