Training for Proposing or Updating Courses and Programs in Courseleaf CIM

Sara Morris, associate vice president for academic affairs, is offering five workshops to train faculty and staff on the Courseleaf CIM (Curriculum Inventory Management) systems.  Training will include how all of the Courseleaf modules are interrelated (what goes where), how the modules interact with Banner, and how workflow operates.

The CIM system can be used to propose new courses, modify existing courses (and request core designations), and propose or modify curriculum requirements for majors, minors or graduate programs.  This training is recommended for any current or future chairs or program directors, faculty members who intend to develop new courses or add core curriculum designations to current courses, faculty members who oversee minors or other curricula, administrative associates to academic departments, or anyone interested in the integration of the curriculum, catalog, and section schedule.

The workshops are being offered on the following days and times:

Canisius Ed Tech Free Webinar Series

The Canisius College Education Technologies Program is hosting a second FREE webinar series on practical applications of technology in the classroom. During each session, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions about the technologies modeled. Participants will also earn Continuing Leadership and Leadership Education (CTLE) credits! 

Our second session will be held Tuesday, November 13 at 3:00 p.m. Robert Zdrojewski, Canisius Ed Tech professor and the K-12 director of instructional technology at Oakfield-Alabama Central Schools, will host a session on using screencasting and the flipped classroom.

The Art of Screencasting: Keys to Flipped Learning

Learn how to create a “digital YOU” using Chromebooks, Windows or Mac! We will explore how educators have “flipped” direct instruction into screencasting so students now have anytime, anywhere access to teacher-produced screencasts. When combined with an online learning platform like Schoology, teachers can create a 24-7 personalized learning environment! We will also explore the latest offerings for becoming Level 1 Flipped Learning Certified by FL Global, as well as hear the challenges that were overcome to ensure all students can view screencasts even without wifi.
