Voluntary Faculty Canvas Training

Wrapping up August with Voluntary Canvas Basics Training Sessions

  • Monday, Aug. 29, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Aug. 30, from 2-4 p.m.
  • Friday, Sept. 2, from 12-2 p.m.

 Canvas Basics Training, in which we cover what you need to get started using Canvas. All training will be held in VINI 107. The sessions will be hands-on. I will be demonstrating how to do things in Canvas, then giving you time to try them. With that in mind, please bring a flash drive loaded with the following materials to the training sessions:

  • Your current syllabus (or a recent one if you have not yet updated it) saved as a Word file
  • A Word document
  • A Rubric if you have one
  • You may also want to bring a pen and paper for notes.

 

As seating is limited to 15 per session, please reserve you spot by emailing Sierra at ssadare@niagara.edu. If you cannot make any of the times listed below Canvas Basics training sessions will be scheduled throughout the academic year. Or you can always set up one-on-one Canvas training. Just email Sierra at ssadare@niagara.edu and we can schedule sessions that are convenient for you.

Or, Canvas Basics for Faculty is now available online. This is a voluntary, fully online, self-paced, eCertificate course designed to introduce you to Canvas and its powerful tools that can assist you in providing students with the means they will need in order to succeed in your course whether you are teaching in a face-to-face, hybrid, or in a fully online class. To sign up, email Sierra Adare-Tasiwoopa ápi at ssadare@niagara.edu and include your NU e-mail address.

Voluntary Canvas Conference Training

Also voluntary, for faculty who have been using Classroom Anywhere, we will be discontinuing it as Canvas has a similar situation already embedded in it—Canvas Conferences. Sierra will be holding training specifically on using Canvas Conferences on the dates and times listed below. As seating is limited to 15 per session, please reserve you spot by emailing ssadare@niagara.edu. If you are interested in Canvas Conferences training but cannot make until after the fall semester begin, you can always set up one-on-one Canvas training by emailing ssadare@niagara.edu to schedule sessions that are convenient for you after the fall semester starts.

  • Thursday, Aug. 25, from 1-3 p.m.
  • Friday, Aug. 26, from 2-4 p.m.
