We use Canvas as an online learning environment, which allows us to share documents, calendars, assignments, announcements, and track progress to certificate completion. If you are interested in earning the PFF Professional Development Certificate in College Teaching, please follow these steps. If you have any questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each workshop has a Workshop Guide page with links to handouts and materials for the workshops. You can preview linked documents or click on the links to download them.
To make it easy to find everything, links to these Workshop Guide Pages will be placed on the FRONT PAGE in Canvas. You can also access them by clicking on PAGES on the left hand navigation bar, then clicking on VIEW ALL PAGES at the top. This will give you a list of pages including all the Workshop Guides.
To see which workshops you have completed, click “Grades” on the navigation bar on the left of the screen. If you have completed the assignment for the workshop and we have reviewed the submission, the workshop will have a score beside it.
You can also track you progress using the PFF Navigator, which is a PDF version of the information on the PFF website, with space to mark requirements completed.
To customize what notifications you receive from canvas, click “settings” in the upper right hand side of the screen. Then click “notifications” on the in the menu bar on the left side of the screen. To change a notification for a contact method, hover over the notification type you want to change. Select one of four options.

Please leave the ANNOUNCEMENTS notifications on “ASAP” in case we need to send everyone an announcement.
When you have completed all other requirements for the PFF certificate, submit your teaching observations and portfolio items to PFF. After verification against our records, you will be awarded a PFF Graduate Certificate.
