This is session one of two for the workshop series titled Teaching Graphic Design Concepts with Canva
NOTE: While we recommend that you attend both sessions of the workshop series to meet the learning objectives, each workshop can be attended as a standalone. Full members will also have access to view the recordings on demand and earn up to two continuing education credits
If your students are hesitant to dive into dynamic software like Adobe Illustrator to create graphics from scratch, they may need a little more time to build their skills and self-confidence. Join Kimberly Muñoz as she shares how to use Canva for Education to introduce design concepts using pre-made graphics and templates. In addition, you will learn how to build a digital classroom using Canva where you can assign lessons to your students that incorporate the elements of design and color theory. Participants will also have an opportunity to create their own graphics that will assist them in teaching their students how to effectively use Canva for Education.
