Workshop: D2L Essentials

Learn the basics and a few features in this training session

If you are a new professor at Canisius or if you have taught at Canisius for a while but want to learn or review essentials of D2L, COLI offers a workshop that’s perfect for this.  In this training session, professors get the very basics of teaching in D2L:

  • Upload files so students can get them
  • Organize your course content
  • Set due dates so students can see them (in multiple places)
  • Build a gradebook

Later, you’ll discover all sorts of other features useful for teaching classes in your particular discipline.  This session gets you started using D2L and the internet to save time and effort teaching.  Review the COLI Calendar to see times and locations for these and other training events.

Learn the Essentials of Teaching at Canisius

Workshop is open to all new, returning and current adjunct professors

The Center for Online Learning & Innovation (COLI) invites all new, returning and current adjunct professors to an Adjunct Faculty Information Session to help prepare for the 2018–19 academic year.  Attend either one of the sessions below to learn about employee resources, the library, the college mission, and technology for teaching and learning. Refreshments will be served.

The sessions are scheduled for:



  • Wednesday, August 22 from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. / Old Main 115
  • Tuesday, September 4 from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. / Old Main 115

This is not mandatory but it’s a fantastic way to quickly get up to speed on the essentials for teaching at Canisius College.  Adjunct faculty who are teaching at Canisius for the first time this fall can obviously benefit but adjunct instructors who taught at Canisius in the past are also welcome.

To RSVP, email We look forward to welcoming you to campus!
