COLI Faculty Development Opportunities

Periodically, COLI staff members will offer workshops on Canisius College technology resources.

These workshops include D2L Essentials. This quick primer on D2L can be useful if you are brand new or just want a refresher before the semester starts in earnest. We also offer workshops on individual D2L tools, like the Dropbox, Grading toolset, and Quizzes.

Other workshops include a brief tutorial in video recording and editing, using Panopto to host videos for your classes, and using, a collaborative annotation tool.

Finally, you can also sign up for COLI’s Online Faculty Development Course. This 5-week course will introduce you to various forms of pedagogy and help you familiarize yourself with the tools available to you. Those that finish the OFDC course will be eligible for a certificate of completion.

If any of these sound useful to you, click here to sign up for a workshop. For a full description of workshops and training events, click here.

If a session time does not work for you, sign-up for a one-on-one consultation with COLI staff members here.

Have a session you would like to see? Email with your recommendations.

Stay tuned to the COLI blog and the Dome for more development opportunities and workshops!
