Here are some core resources from the Center for Online Learning and Innovation (COLI) helpful for faculty teaching in the 2021 spring semester:

  • Canisius Faculty Preparedness Guide: Rapidly transition courses to an 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.
  • COVID-19 Academic Resources: Policies, guidelines and tips from Academic Affairs Division, concerning teaching during the COVID-19 crisis.
  • Canisius Student Preparedness Guide: Guide for students in circumstances where all courses must be in a remote/online format. Professors should scan it, since there may be helpful links for syllabi, assignment instructions or D2L course space.
  • Resources for Teaching Online: 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: Fresh tutorials explaining how to integrate Google Drive-based content with D2L. This resource is for both faculty and students.
  • Zoom Tutorials: Resources for using Zoom for synchronous course meetings.
  • 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.
  • Canisius College Helpdesk: Ask questions about information technology here. Your question will be channeled to the right person who can best answer it.
