Unleashing Its Power in Your Classes

Blackboard is a course management system that is currently available to all Xavier faculty members. Some professors use it extensively, some use it moderately, some not at all. This discussion will bring together experts, novices and the curious to explore innovative uses of this technology. We are interested not only in what Blackboard can do but in the underlying assumptions about teaching and learning that inform its use.

Featuring: Dr. Hema Bandaranayake, Assistant Professor (Biology), who will share his experience in creating a master course for multiple sections of Biology 1230; and Dr. Rosalind Hale, Associate Professor (Division of Education), who will share what she has learned from extensive use of the Discussion Board feature in Blackboard.

  • Led by: Dr. Elizabeth Rhodes, Educational Technology Support/Distance Learning Specialist, Library
  • Date: Wednesday, September 8, 2004
  • Time: Noon - 12:50 PM
  • Location: Library 502
  • Sponsor: CAT

Note: Participants will be invited to join the "Blackboard Blackboard" so that they might continue to share ideas and trouble-shoot problems.
