First Place Hockey Hosts Army West Point

Head to HARBORCENTER for a pair of weekend games

With only six regular season games remaining in the season, Canisius hosts a huge weekend series with Army West Point tonight, Friday, February 9 and Saturday, February 10 at HARBORCENTER. Both games face-off at 7:35 p.m. with hockey’s newest Hall of Fame inductee Ryan Puntiri dropping the opening puck on Saturday.

Your Griffs remain in a first place tie with Holy Cross after a two-game split with the Crusaders last weekend. Canisius does have a pair of games in hand over Holy Cross. Nipping at their heels is Robert Morris with 26 points and Mercyhurst with 24. Army is in sixth place with 22 points.

Canisius hockey tickets are at $10 and $15 and may be purchased the night of the game, or in advance at the KAC box office. Faculty and staff receive a discounted price on all tickets.

Please note, the Key Bank Center is hosting events on Friday night and Saturday night, so fans are encouraged to take the Metro if they want to avoid the parking fees in the ramp.

For additional information, visit www.GoGriffs.com or call 716-888-TIXX.

Faculty Meetup: Teaching Online

Learn tips from other faculty

For more than a decade, Canisius faculty have taught high quality online and hybrid courses.  In the process, our professors have pioneered methods in this relatively new medium for teaching and learning.

In March, the Center for Online Learning and Innovation invites online and hybrid instructors to a Meetup where we can share experiences in, reflections on, and ambitions for teaching online.

Our Online and Hybrid Faculty Meetup takes place on Friday, March 2 from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. in the Library Learning Center Classroom.  COLI supplies refreshments!

Rather than a formal presentation, faculty should come to share insights and concerns.  In your online courses, what works for you?  What doesn’t?  How do you measure your success?  What would you like to do teaching online that you’re not doing now, either because you’re still planning or building the course, or because you face an obstacle of some sort?

We also invite faculty interested in teaching online or hybrid classes but who have not yet done so.  Please bring your questions for our seasoned veteran online faculty and gain valuable insights from those who have built excellent online courses.
