Some of your favorite Bb employees and well-known clients have provided their list of “must-see sessions.” There’s definitely something for everyone, whether you’re a director of technology, system administrator, instructional technologist, or a professional development coordinator. Take a look here as you plot out your trip:
Kelly Dempsey-Little, Instructional Technologist at Skidmore College picked these seven sessions because:
- She wants to learn more about the history of eLearning and how far the industry has come;
- Preparing to and moving to 9.1 was a big job for her institution, she’s interested to hear how others have navigated the transition;
- Video has become an integral part of her curriculum. Getting trained on integrating video into Blackboard will enhance her teaching.
Bert Ross, Manager, Teacher Student Support at Baltimore City Public Schools picked these 11 sessions because:
- He wants to learn more about how Blackboard is and can be used in K-12;
- He is interested in how others have encouraged end users to become active users of Blackboard;
- He wants to know how he can increase engagement with a variety of stakeholders, including parents.
Jan Day, Senior Director, Client Engagement at Blackboard had a hard time narrowing it down to 10, so she picked these 19 sessions because:
- Clients tell us they want relevant, real-world information that they can implement on their own. These sessions offer lessons-learned on a variety of topics;
- Based on recent conversations with clients, these sessions are of interest and will provide insight on work going on at institutions across the client community.
