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.

Thanks.
Inger-Marie

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:

Blackboard Enhanced Assessment & Feedback Workshop
The Blackboard Customer Success team are coming to xxx to provide a free workshop -  "Enhanced Assessment and Feedback". This hands on workshop will provide you and your peers with an opportunity to review, analyse and prioritise key institutional assessment and feedback related challenges and opportunities. We will then identify relevant Blackboard solutions and share with you use cases and best practice examples to inspire you use these to best effect.
These workshops are free for Blackboard customers and are being held across regions.  Bring as many colleagues as you like. Places are limited and are allocated on a first come, first serve basis.

Workshop Content:
Assessment and feedback – an institutional perspective
Examination of key drivers and challenges
(Reputations, quality of process, quality of data, legal, business efficiencies, risk etc.)
Placing use cases on a confidence/effectiveness model
Highlight relevant Blackboard solutions

Assessment and feedback – innovation and organizational change

Hi guys, hoping you can share a little bit about your integration setups.   Initially, we build our integration to delete enrolments if a student de-registers for a course. I.e. the enrolment disappeared from our data file, and we used refresh mode to delete the enrolments that were not present in the file. This would unenrol the student from the… (Show more)

At NTNU, we have an intranet for students and employees, where we post (almost) all links and information on wiki pages and message feeds. The exception has been the (old) learning management system, where each course has its own message/news feed and the system itself has its own message feed (just like Blackboard). This means that all messages… (Show more)
