What is Canva, you might ask?

Canva gives businesses, organizations, and people like you – a very simple design platform that enables you to create amazing and professional quality graphic designs. Canva is a design tool that is ideal for use in your learning designs to create beautiful projects that engage, inspire and inform.

And EASY, so EASY! Ever open up Adobe Illustrator and run screaming because of the scary interface? I feel you!


Canva templates provide a shortcut to good design. They’re fully customizable, you can change the colors, images, text, and dimensions to suit your taste. There are quite literally thousands of templates for every design need.

But sometimes you need something that is slightly more custom to your needs.

Perhaps you’ve got the vision for a perfect handout, PowerPoint design, infographic, learning journey map, or you want to develop a fun “how-to” gif? Canva is here to bring it to life, and our special guest Gloria Alvarez can help you get there from here!


Gloria Alvarez is here to show us a thing or two (or three) about Canva!

Gloria is a creative junkie and a creator with a passion for detail. Gloria attended the art institute and decided to use her skills over the past 17 years designing learning content for Fortune 500 companies in various industries. Outside work, Gloria dabbles in social media content creation, photography, and spending time with her family.

A person who is experienced in designing learning content and went to school at the Art Institute? YES, PLEASE! 


You can look forward to this session being fun and highly interactive!

In fact, we ask you to sign up for a FREE Canva account so you can play along and have something to “show and tell.”
