This Capstone Project was designed for the course, EDST6306, at Seton Hall University. A Needs Analysis with the Science Teachers at Passaic County Technical Institute (PCTI) revealed that further Professional Development in Canvas was needed for Science Teachers. Canvas is a Learning Management System (LMS) that was recently purchased by PCTI and has capabilities similar to Blackboard and Moodle, which are typically used aslearning mediums at the college level in some way shape or form. Improper training could in fact result in limited and ineffective utilization of this great LMS and adversely impact learning at the High School. This Capstone Project worked towards the development of a strategically designed Professional Development Seminar in accordance with the latest and best practices in the field of Instructional Design with input and feedback from other professionals and peers throughout each step of the way. Direct input from the participants and school administration was taken into account into the design process as well.
