If you already know how to build your Canvas course, perhaps you would prefer to spend a year with CSUN colleagues in a formal course exploring evidence-based pedagogies such as active learning, equity and learning-centered practices. This results with a rare certificate in Effective College Instruction.

Coming Soon

Faculty interested in joining a small campus pilot to explore a new teaching modality called HyFlex, should contact their Department Chairs & Dean to inquire if joining this program for Fall 2021 is appropriate.
