Dear all,


You are invited to attend the Blackboard Medicine & Health User Group which will be hosted at The University of Sheffield on Thursday 15th November on City Campus 12pm -16.00pm


After a successful initial online meeting we came up with a range of discussion topics that the community would like to discuss further. You'll notice there is a question on the registration form which allows you to volunteer to present on a topic of your choice, so please don't be shy! These expressions of interest will help us formulate an agenda for the afternoon. As a reminder, here is a list of the range of topics people were interested in:


  • Sharing practice around what works for you and what doesn't: specifically in terms of tools and features in Blackboard and workflow management
  • Governance of programmes and managing staff
  • Developing staff skills; challenges of medicine teaching i.e. can be brief
  • Differences in platforms BB Learn and Ultra
  • Use the Blackboard Ideas Exchange to feedback new feature developments
  • Use of OER in education
  • Goals and Alignments - interested in how GDC, GMC outcomes (for example) can be integrated and mapped
  • What support is in place for learning technology at each university/ school/ programmes/ departments/ support structure


So, to register your interest please sign up via the registration link
