Broadening engagement with educational technologies
Northwestern Information Technology supports creativity and innovation in teaching and learning through the incorporation of Canvas and other educational technologies as an integral part of the educational experience at Northwestern University.
To this end, Teaching and Learning Technologies has broadened its focus, using Canvas as a platform to explore blended and active learning techniques and share them with the campus. Expanding Northwestern’s engagement with educational technologies is the focus of a variety of endeavors, including interactive workshops, public events, and working closely with collaborative faculty groups.

The Kaplan Institute hosts a Digital Humanities Summer Workshop, which is supported by the Arthur Vining Davis Foundation. The workshop is dedicated to teaching faculty how to implement digital humanities into undergraduate courses and research.
