CILT Website and Canvas Training Resources

The Center for Innovative Learning and Teaching now has a website:

As a part of that website, there is a specific page dedicated to the Canvas transition – – that includes a copy of the transition plan for the Touro University Western Division, a list of the different ways to get trained on Canvas, a calendar of local training events at both Touro University California and Touro University Nevada, and resources that have been created specifically for our two campuses.

One particular item for the faculty at Touro University California, there is a resource video available at that outlines the five specific items instructors need to update to personalize the Touro University California blueprint that has been applied to their course.

Finally, we wanted to highlight some up-coming Zoom training that the folks in New York are doing this month. While they are continuing a lot of their “General Canvas Training Sessions” (see ), there are also a number of other training sessions focused on assessment functions. All of these times are Pacific.
