New Faculty

Welcome to Canadore! This space explains where to find and how to access the training, EdTech tools, resources, and support you need to teach students at the College.

New Faculty Orientation

All new faculty at Canadore attend two orientation sessions. These sessions are New Employment Orientation (NEO) and New Faculty Orientation (NFO).

NEO is the College’s official organizational onboarding orientation. All College staff and faculty complete. NFO/Intro to iLearn is an introduction for faculty to the College’s teaching and learning practices, EdTech tools for instruction, and teaching resources and support. You will receive an invitation to register and attend both NEO and NFO/Intro to iLearn sessions via email after you are hired by the College.

New faculty can also review, register, and attend the many PD opportunities available to all faculty at Canadore at any time.


There are many EdTech tools at Canadore to support you while you teach at the College. Visit the EdTech section to review a list of the EdTech tools available to you, and how to access and find support to use them.
