First Time Faculty
TROY Online would like to extend a warm welcome to new faculty. As an instructor, you are a valued member of the TROY team. Because of you, our students achieve academic success and move a step closer to their goals on a daily basis. The Center for Excellence in eTeaching (CEeT) is here to partner with you as you prepare to teach for the first time. We provide Canvas certification, which is discussed in more detail below. Our Instructional Design Team and Faculty Trainers also provide ongoing technology training and course design support. We are here to collaborate with you to develop engaging, interactive courses that meet the needs of our diverse body of learners. We look forward to working with you!
In order to comply with SACS standards, all instructors who wish to teach online or web-enhanced courses must first be Canvas certified. Completing Canvas certification will also help you understand the best way to utilize Canvas for online course delivery. The CEeT offers two options for receiving Canvas certification:
We are offering Canvas certification through participating and completing our Canvas Introductory Training. Not only will completing the training certify you, but it will also help you understand the best way to utilize Canvas for online course delivery. There is a lot to cover in this Canvas Introductory Training so it will be divided up into two different training sessions. You will need to attend both sessions to earn Canvas Certification. Please visit our Professional Development page to register for training.
The Kung Fu Canvas course is a self-paced course. If you complete the course and become a Black Belt in canvas you will be able to utilize the Canvas LMS for your online or on-campus course. If you would like to enroll in Kung Fu Canvas, please contact LaKayla Moore or Scott Smith.
