Blackboard celebrated the 2014 Catalyst Award winners with an energizing awards luncheon at BbWorld14. The Blackboard Catalyst Awards honors those who push the boundaries of their educational programs and technology in order to deliver innovative and effective learning experiences in 5 categories. This year we had 340 submissions, which was a 50% increase from last year!
Jay Bhatt kicked off the awards ceremony. We honored all 90 of this year’s winners, 67 of which received the prestigious Exemplary Course Award for designing engaging blended or fully online courses. Other award categories included:
- Innovative Blended Learning
- Staff Development
- Student Impact
This year’s winners exemplify everything that we are trying to accomplish with our new vision and mission here at Blackboard, completely reimagining the ways we can approach education by innovating, inspiring, leading and doing.
