Professional development courses are essential in maintaining, and developing, high levels of competence and capability in digital teaching and learning to meet the expectations of the learners of today and tomorrow. It is difficult to argue with such a statement; however, it is recognised that translating newly developed skills and knowledge into practice is more of a significant challenge. This session provides an overview of a unique development between Blackboard and Sheffield Hallam University (one of the UK’s largest universities) designed to create a mechanism for learners on Blackboard’s Digital Teaching and Learning Series (E Teacher programme) to reflect on, and embed, new subject knowledge and techniques into their professional practice- whilst providing an opportunity to study for internationally recognised academic credit at Post Graduate level.
