Canvas Coming in Winter 2020, CTLT Support is Available

This year, Cal Poly will begin the transition from its Learning Management System, PolyLearn-Moodle, to Canvas. The two systems will run alongside one another during winter, spring and summer 2020, with Canvas fully implemented next fall.

New Book and Learning Circles Set for Fall

Image of book cover "The ONE Thing"Employee and Organization Development is excited to announce its fall 2019 Book and Learning Circles. Faculty and staff are invited to participate in these conversations, including a Book Circle, where participants read a book and discuss as a group, or a Learning Circle, where attendees view a video or read an article before discussing as a group.
— Book Circles involve reading a book over the course of multiple sessions. The first book, "The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results" by Gary Keller, helps readers discover why choosing to focus on only one thing allows them to achieve the success they want. The second book, "Daring Greatly" by Brené Brown, works to dispel the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and argues that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.
— Learning Circles involve watching a video or reading an article, and participating in a discussion during a single session. In the learning circle "How to Let Go of Being a 'Good' Person — And Become a Better Person," Dolly Chugh explains the puzzling psychology of ethical behavior — like why it’s hard to spot biases and acknowledge mistakes — and shows how the path to becoming better starts with owning your mistakes.

Campus Announcements

Canyon Circle is Now a One-Way Road in PCV

Map of Canyon Circle showing the new one-way route.A portion of Canyon Circle, the traffic loop encircling Poly Canyon Village, is now a permanent one-way road. Since the start of fall classes, traffic will only run two ways to the first entrance of the Canyon Circle Parking Structure, where it will then be one way, running clockwise around the loop. This change was made after the Campus Safety and Risk Management (CSRM) Committee received concerns from Transportation and Parking Services (TAPS) and the Cal Poly Police Department. Both TAPS and the police department have reported a number of accidents on the loop between vehicles, pedestrians and bicycles. There were also concerns about illegal parking, steep grades, sharp turns, sight distance and signage. The committee worked with the Civil Engineering Department to analyze the road last spring. Professor Anurag Pande and his Transportation Safety Course, CE 526, performed an analysis and developed a report with recommendations for a one-way road conversion. “The minor modification to traffic flow will greatly enhance the safety of the loop road and reduce the number of accidents,” committee chair Juanita Holler said. “It will also allow closer and more delivery spots for vendor parking to service the retail locations and distribution services.”

Submissions may run a maximum of three times and should be limited to 150 words.

A list of designated approvers is available on the Cal Poly Report index website. Entries submitted by those other than the designated approver must be accompanied by an approval form signed by the unit's approver. The approval form is available online in fillable pdf format or a downloadable Microsoft Word format. CPR is published weekly during the school year, except during academic breaks, and monthly in the summer. The deadline for each issue is 12:30 p.m. the Friday prior to publication.
