Training Resource for Faculty
October 21, 2021
Los Rios has launched a training resource to assist faculty in becoming dynamic instructors in the online course modality.
The Los Rios Foundations of Canvas Course Design course is offered entirely online over two weeks and covers four key areas – using canvas, employing regular, effective and substantive contact, applying universal design for learning/accessibility, and developing assessments. To date, over 600 faculty have completed the training with excellent reviews.
While the training is required of new online instructors, all faculty are eligible to participate, regardless of prior experience. Faculty are eligible to receive a stipend of $591 upon completion of the course through June 30, 2022. Thereafter the stipend is reserved for adjunct faculty.
