Faculty Development & Support

Instructional Technology and Design Services offers many faculty development opportunities year-round to support teaching and learning. These include workshops, Empowering Online Teaching and Learning (an online course emphasizing pedagogical approaches), our annual conferences, and many special events. For faculty new to Canvas, visit our Montclair State Canvas Faculty Orientation or register for our workshops. You can also schedule a one-on-one appointment with a member of the ITDS team.

We offer events and workshops to assist faculty with many aspects of teaching. Our workshops cover Canvas, course design, pedagogical strategies to implement in the classroom, online, or when teaching hybrid, and much more. We also offer one-on-one consultations.

Workshops & Support

Our team offers a number of facilitated courses throughout the year offered in an online, asynchronous format. Our goal is to create and provide courses that meet the needs and demands of our growing faculty audience.
