Updated for 2022, the Online Faculty Development Course (OFDC) offered by COLI is for faculty new to D2L and pros. This five-week mini-course prepares instructors to teach hybrid courses. The OFDC provides many practical types for teaching online but more importantly, helps faculty explore new pedagogies for active learning, social presence, and community in courses on the internet.
Additionally, the updated OFDC offers insights on what Regular and Substantive Interactions (RSI) are and how to incorporate RSI into your courses. It also includes information on Panopto, Canisius’s new video content management system, how it works, and how to best fit Panopto into your courses.
The OFDC can help professors craft engaging, interactive online experiences for students that go hand-in-hand with limited use of the classroom. This spring semester, we are offering two courses, one starting on January 31 and ending on March 4, and a second one starting on March 28 and ending on April 29.
To RSVP for either, please check out the COLI faculty development events here. While you are there, be sure to sign up for our Online Teaching and Learning Updates Workshops and Panopto Workshops too!
