The Centre for Academic Excellence is running two upcoming Blackboard training opportunities for faculty.
A Blackboard Boot Camp, as well as Blackboard Help Sessions will be available at the Welland and Niagara-on-the-Lake Campuses.
Blackboard Boot Camp
Faculty, are you interested in a broad‐based and interactive introduction to Blackboard? If so, the CAE is offering comprehensive Blackboard training sessions for faculty who want to learn how to access, set up, and use Blackboard course sites. During this workshop, you will:
• Explore key features of a Blackboard course site;
• Assemble a sample Blackboard course using content, communication, collaboration, and assessment tools; and
• Discuss how Blackboard can be used in your courses to support teaching and learning.
We’ll go over the basics of Blackboard and then look at ways to use the platform to engage in effective assessment, communication, and collaboration.
NOTL Campus: August 29, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., North N302
Welland Campus: September 1, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., M110
