Here is a quick list of resources that faculty may find helpful as we approach the end of an admittedly “exciting” Spring Semester, and prepare our summer courses. Many of these are updated frequently, so it’s worth checking back periodically.
Canisius Faculty Preparedness Guide – Our guide for rapidly transitioning courses to online format, in response to COVID 19 Social Distancing. This includes tutorials, possibilities for building online activities, links to live training, and our faculty mentors list.
Resources for Teaching Online – the complete list of resources for faculty teaching online or hybrid courses.
Faculty Development Opportunities – live trainings and meetups where you can learn core technologies for teaching online, and discuss possibilities with fellow faculty.
D2L Self-Paced Training – although individually they appear elsewhere, the complete list of current D2L tutorials for Canisius faculty can be found here.
Google Apps Tutorials – for faculty and students at Canisius College. For faculty, particularly, there are fresh tutorials explaining how to integrate Google Drive-based content with D2L.
Pedagogy Primer Podcast – COLI’s podcast focusing on teaching and learning. The latest episodes include tips for Asynchronous Discussions, which are a common element in online teaching and learning.
