OIT’s workshop portfolio provides opportunities to guide instructors using Canvas in three distinct categories to better serve their diverse needs. Training Types are: N-Novice is for new DSU employees or novice users, I-Intermediate is for DSU employees who are competent in the basics, but want to expand their skills set. A-Advanced is for individuals who have demonstrated mastery in execution and who desire to advance their expertise. Individuals can benefit from participation in sessions at any level.
