Voluntary Faculty Canvas Training

The location of the voluntary Canvas Basics training sessions TBA. The Canvas Basics training sessions will be hands-on. Sierra 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 20 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 an individual training session.

Or, Canvas Basics for Faculty is 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 email address.
