Canvas Demo

For the Spring 2015 semester, I had the opportunity to use Canvas, an educational learning platform, as part of a pilot program through Purdue University’s Information Technology department. In addition to using the program in my English 106 class, I gave an information presentation evaluating the pros and cons of my experience with Canvas to members of the University who were not participating in the pilot but wanted to learn about the program. Below is a video of that presentation, given at Purdue on April 2, 2015.

The Purdue Early Atlantic Reading Group (EARG) Colloquium took place April 10-11 at the Purdue Graduate Student Center. The Keynote address was given by Professor Wendy Belcher of Princeton University.
The colloquium was a great success, with an average of 15 participants attending each panel. For more information, see the attached program (designed by Stacey Dearing), flyers (designed by Kim Hunter-Perkins), or visit
