Winter 2023 Blackboard Ultra Working Groups
Blackboard Ultra is coming and we are here to support you during that transition!
Students are more engaged, learn more, persist in their studies, and graduate in stronger numbers when we use evidence-based teaching practices. A focus on pedagogy/andragogy first, in combination with the content expertise and research methods must drive our response to technology and platform upgrades.
Each Blackboard Ultra Working Group will be facilitated by an expert graduate of the ACUE course on effective teaching strategies, who is also an early adopter of Bb Ultra. The group will work together in making the move to Bb Ultra align with those best and most effective teaching practices.
We are offering multiple groups so faculty are able to select a group that meets during a time (and in a format) that works best with your Winter 2023 semester schedule. Groups will start meeting at the end of January so register online today!
The Robert and Mary Pew Faculty Teaching and Learning Center serves as a catalyst for promoting a culture of teaching excellence at Grand Valley State University. Rooted in a liberal education tradition and informed by the scholarship of teaching and learning, we advocate innovative teaching and student-centered pedagogies. We partner with faculty as they prepare students to contribute meaningfully to their professions and societies.
