For instructors who have completed the introductory Getting Started workshop or similar orientation training.
Face-to-face, hands-on workshop
This workshop provides a hands-on introduction to the Blackboard Learn™ tools used to inform and communicate with students. Participants will first use the tools as a student, becoming familiar with how they will appear to their own students. Then, turning to the instructor perspective, they will learn to use the tools to keep students informed about course events, send messages, and communicate effectively in real-time. Also, participants will discuss pedagogical and practical issues related to using the tools in the online environment.
