I know, over the years I’ve spoken to many of you about my love for Washington, D.C. It’s my hometown – I grew up just outside the District and have lived here my whole life. I think we’ve got it all: a historical yet vibrant city, mountains, ocean – all within a few hours. I’ve even invited a few of you to visit me over the years.
I’m extending that invitation to a slightly larger group this year. Who’s invited? Well . . . all of you!
Mark your calendars for BbWorld '09 being held from July 14 – July 16, 2009, at the Gaylord National Resort, just outside Washington.
The annual Blackboard users conference provides opportunities for us to discover, share, learn, experience and network. There’s no better place for you to connect with others who share your passion for e-Learning!
That passion is the backbone of the conference program. Consider sharing your ideas with this gathering of your peers and the Blackboard team. Submit your proposed session now! The submission deadline is February 27.
You'll notice the proposal form is a bit different this year. This is a direct result of the feedback we received following BbWorld '08. Attendees wanted more information from presenters so that they could make more educated choices during the conference. And our Program Committee needed more information to help them make their selections! So we’re asking presenters to tell us a bit more about their planned sessions. But don’t worry – it’s still easy to submit!
Speaking of the Program Committee . . . If you’re interested in having a hand in planning BbWorld this year, email me at BbWorld@Blackboard.com. The Committee is open to all clients who’d like to participate! I’ll post again shortly with more information on what participation entails.
System Administrators and Developers: Remember the annual Blackboard Developers Conference will be held in conjunction with BbWorld ’09. Join us on Thursday afternoon, July 16, and Friday, July 17, for two days of in-depth technical sessions on all aspects of Blackboard PowerLinks and Blackboard Building Blocks technology. We encourage you to submit a presentation proprosal.
(Read this far? Well, thank you. This is just a little thing . . . but the first person to submit a proposal for BbWorld, DevCon or a Pre-Conference Workshop will receive a cute, little Washington, D.C. “Cool Sites” calendar, thanks to my favorite officemate.)
