Faculty Support Resources

NSU's Learning and Education Center serves as a faculty resource center for promoting pedagogical innovation and teaching excellence. Resources are available to support teaching practices and strategies.


Faculty Development Channel

This channel includes video recordings of previously offered workshops from the Learning and Educational Center and our University partners.

Syllabus Management

Dynamically generated syllabi for all NSU courses are managed through this AppCentral application. Each college creates their own custom syllabus that includes course and college information so faculty can focus on the sections they are responsible for. These syllabi are available to students via a link which will be automatically included in Canvas and Course Wizard search tool.



Turnitin provides plagiarism prevention services, and digital grading products to educational institutions around the world. The Turnitin Building Block extension in Canvas gives users of the Canvas Learning System the ability to use Turnitin products within their Canvas interface.
