Familiarize yourself with Canvas. Canvas is the LMS (Learning Management System) that UAB uses for classes. The content for all your course assignments will be posted on Canvas, including live video feeds and recorded classes. Visit the UAB Canvas website - to take a look around. From this site, you can register for training sessions and tutorials. As soon as you have your BlazerID, you can login to the system and look around. Note: if you log in, you won’t see any courses until you register for classes and the courses are officially opened (typically the week before classes meet).

IEM 601 Seminar Assignment #1


Your first seminar assignment is to read the book “Strengths Finder 2.0” by Tom Rath and complete the assessment included with the book. Feel free to purchase the book or the Kindle version. Be prepared to bring your results to the seminar in August. One of our seminar speakers will be discussing the book and your results.

Please let us know if you have questions or would like us to address in the coming weeks.
