THE CENTER FOR FACULTY DEVELOPMENT AND THE OFFICE OF ONLINE LEARNING are offering workshops and one-on-one consultation for faculty as they move their courses online. 

If you have questions about the workshops or about the services of the Center for Faculty Development, email cfdFREEMississippi. If you have questions specific to online course delivery, support for faculty teaching online, and/or  Canvas tools, please email onlineFREEMississippi.

Note also that the University has purchased access to the exceptional 24/7 Canvas phone support (833.668.1667). You may also chat  with Canvas from within your Canvas account. 

Have you already been  teaching in Canvas? Are you willing to answer email questions from your faculty colleagues who are  transitioning to the online environment? We need  your help!  We are building a list of faculty ambassadors who will serve as points of contact for other faculty who are learning to use Canvas. The more we support each other, the easier this transition will be. If you have a few minutes to contribute, please email cfdFREEMississippi and let us know, and we will add your name to the list.  Thanks!

Faculty Ambassadors

Faculty Ambassadors have all taught online to varying degrees and have offered their time and knowledge to assist other faculty in this time of transition. You may contact any of the ambassadors directly to ask questions regarding teaching online.
