Kim has been the CSU Quality Assurance Campus lead at Humboldt and currently leads the CSU Canvas Common Interest Group, a community of learners engaged in using Canvas and related technologies to support learning and teaching. In her free time, Kim loves to travel, write and be outdoors cycling, hiking, and swimming with her partner and three daughters.

How can a new technology, like Canvas, open the world of teaching and learning beyond the physical classroom? Together, we will explore ways to inspire, innovate, and impact through the intersection of teaching, learning, and Canvas/Canvas related technologies.
