During this session, a panel of three instructors will provide examples of different Blackboard Learn features used to enhance and support their active learning classroom.  Functionality of rubrics, wikis, grading, online testing, and embracing the mobile environment have proven to be invaluable in supporting online and on-ground students through their coursework.  Join the Master Automotive Technician, Chef, and Medical Coder to see how they have embraced Learn functionality to best serve their students.

Takeaways from the session:

  • How a rubric can be used in a lab setting
  • How the use of rubrics and transparent grading help to clarify expectations of students
  • The workflow for using Learn to support active learning activities
  • The impact of wiki usage on classroom community and instructor presence
