Each of our CCCCD colleges work together to provide professional development opportunities to instructors along their pathway to effective online instruction.
Self-paced or facilitated one-week Canvas course covering course set up, navigation, homepage development, creating modules, creating assignments, using quizzes, organizing gradebook, and Canvas accessibility basics. This course is a comprehensive starting point for face-to-face, hybrid, and online classes.
This course provides a solid foundation in Canvas for faculty entering the Becoming an Effective Online Instructor (BEOI) course, and offers up to 5 hours of variable flex credit for faculty. (Note: BEOI - or a comparable training - will become needed for certification to teach online in our District. Because BEOI assumes instructors are familiar with Canvas basics, this optional Beginner's Guide course is available as support.)
Facilitated 4 week course covering online set up and navigation; writing online course policies; directing students to online resources; using Canvas tools to build learning modules; building discussions, assignments,and quizzes; connecting objectives to online content; building a student facing online orientation; creating a learning content module; creating activities that ensure regular & effective contact between instructor and student and among students; humanizing the online course experience including establishing equitable practices; and applying current practices in accessibility.
Note: this course meets the contractual mandate for online instructors to complete online instructor training. Instructors who have taken an equivalent training through another college or program can submit the Comparable Training Equivalency Form.
