The Center at Midway for Teaching Excellence and Innovation supports student success by engaging all Midway University faculty in a scholarly approach to teaching and fostering a culture of inclusive excellence in teaching and learning. We serve as a campus clearinghouse for information about teaching and learning resources, promoting and facilitating connections throughout the University’s teaching community.
Many of you are aware of the transition that is taking place in the online learning world at Midway University. Effective June 15, we will no longer have access to our Moodle site. All Summer 2020 Midway University courses will be held in our new LMS - Canvas.
To stay up-to-date with the transition progress, read the weekly updates here. Important deadlines and resources will be posted to assist you.
Visit the Center Training Hub for upcoming opportunities for Canvas training and faculty development. The Center offers a variety of learning opportunities including interactive workshops, self-paced trainings, and discussions. You can also schedule a 1-1 consultation or request specialized group trainings.
NOTE: Due to social distancing guidelines, all Center Training Hub opportunities will be offered online.
Find valuable resources for teaching at Midway University on the Faculty Resources page. The Center@Midway's programs and services are also described.
The Center@Midway has prepared guides to a variety of teaching topics with summaries of best practices, links to other online resources, and information about local Midway resources.
