A summary of April workshops for staff, run by the Education Support Unit, to encourage the use of technology in learning, teaching and assessment at Bristol.
The following workshops are coming up in April:
Improving student experiences of your Blackboard course: how and why it matters
This workshop is intended to introduce the concept of improving the design of your Blackboard course in order to enhance the student experience, the rationale being that a poorly designed and inaccessible Blackboard course is unlikely to achieve the intended objectives. This workshop will involve participants in reviewing their own and other courses against a set of usability criteria, and identifying areas for improvement. In addition, the workshop will introduce a selection of case studies and current best practice that will then be translated into improving the design of the participants’ Blackboard courses.

Further developing your Blackboard skills
This course is for staff who are already familiar with the Blackboard Virtual Learning Environment and wish to further develop their skills and use. The session will respond to the needs of the participants and will involve using some of Blackboard’s more advanced features. There will be the opportunity to discuss effective use of these features and gain hands-on experience.
