Workshop

So you've got a good grasp on Blackboard, you've posted your lecture materials, and you're tracking student work through the Grade Center. But, are you really reaching your students? To effectively engage and therefore teach today's students, it all starts with understanding them, their goals, their practices, how they see technology and how they approach the day. This one-day event will guide you through activities that will help you toward reaching your students in and out of class. We will wrap up the day by exploring the possibilities of Immersive Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented reality (AR) across disciplines. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.

Blackboard: Using Rubrics

Join the Instructional Technology Lab to learn about Blackboard! Have you ever had students wondering why they got a certain grade on their assignment, or what their grade was made of? Consider using Blackboard rubrics. A Blackboard rubric lists evaluation criteria for a graded activity. Rubrics can help students organize their efforts to meet the requirements of an assignment. Instructors can use rubrics to assess the students consistently against a set of criteria, and to explain their evaluations to students. This workshop will cover the basics of Blackboard rubrics. Participants will learn how to create a rubric, associate it to a graded activity and effortlessly grade using an interactive rubric.

Please register here.
