Blackboard Enhanced Assessment & Feedback Workshop

Hi all

Gillian Fielding, who is Customer Success Advocate at Blackboard and who did a talk on user groups at our user group meeting in Milan asks whether we are interested in Blackboard arranging workshops for us, e.g. one in Sweden and one in Denmark or Norway. Please read the details below and write a comment stating yes or no and if yes, where you would like such a workshop to be held.


Gillian explains: We have run workshops over here in the UK and Ireland and in Amsterdam and thought they might be of interest in Sweden and the Scandinavia group area. It would be free to attendees, the hosts would offer a venue,  and to organise the administration such as a booking system, order refreshments, etc. We would pay for the refreshments (with a budget limit).

Do let me know what you think.

Here is the outline:
