Virtual Poster Symposium in CarmenCanvas

Faculty Show and Tell: Virtual Poster Symposium

Taking a traditional in-person course and transforming it into an online-only format can be challenging. How do you stay engaged with your students? What happens when an essential course assignment is a highly interactive, face-to-face activity? Believe it or not, CarmenCanvas has the functionality to make engaging assignments work in a virtual space.

Associate Professor Brian Lower and Instructional Aids Associate Ella Weaver, from the School of Environment and Natural Resources, used CarmenCanvas to create a virtual poster symposium.
