Online Faculty Development Course – Summer 2019

The Center for Online Learning & Innovation (COLI) will run an Online Faculty Development Course throughout summer 2019 to help prepare faculty to teach online and hybrid classes. The course will run from Monday, May 27 – Saturday, June 29. The class is entirely online and simulates a real fully-online course so professors can learn to teach online while getting the online student experience.

Learn how to build engaging, rigorous online and hybrid courses that are powered by teaching skills and enthusiasm. Discover how to sensibly incorporate interactive learning, social engagement and teaching presence in an online class space. After this mini-course, faculty will craft effective and engaging web-based courses that incorporate their personality and talents as a professor, and Canisius College’s special blend of Jesuit identity and pedagogy.

This course is available to all Canisius College faculty. Whether you plan to teach an online course in the future, aren’t yet sure you’ll teach online or would just like to know more about online courses and coursework, this is an excellent opportunity.

To enroll, contact View the COLI Calendar for times and locations of other faculty development events.
