Blackboard has an annual teaching an learning conference in Europe and this year it is taking place in Ireland, in UCD, on 29 April to 2 May. This is a big conference, usually attended by users from right across Europe and it can be a good way to find out how other people are using it, as well as where the product is going.
Given that the event is being held in Ireland this year, there is an opportunity for NUI Galway staff to demonstrate some of the excellent work that’s being done with Blackboard here.
The call for presentations is currently open, until Friday 24th January. If you are doing something unusual or innovative with Blackboard, do consider submitting a proposal. If you’d like our help to put together a proposal, just get in touch with any of the CELT Learning Technologies Team members. We’d be happy to hear from you.
As added incentive, the best session as voted by the audience will win an entrance ticket to BbWorld 2014, Las Vegas and a speaking slot to present the session there as well!
