Engagement and Interaction are popular concepts discussed in the teaching and learning realm. These concepts are evolving based on the characteristics and expectations of the new "Traditional Student" in Higher Education. Learners are looking to engage and interact with instructors, content, and peers while leveraging technology as a seamless tool to use in their daily routine.

Join us in this webinar to define the characteristics of the new type of learner coming into higher education institutions and identify the ways Blackboard can empower you as an educator to meet the new requirements and expectations of students while improving efficiency and effectiveness in today’s teaching and learning space.

Attendees Will Learn:

1) Understand the characteristics and expectations of the new "Traditional Student" in Higher Education\

2) Discover how students prefer to engage with online learning.

3) Learn how Blackboard can empower you to meet and exceed your teaching and learning goals.
