Community: More Than Just a Discussion Board – A Lifeline (SLATE Conference 2011)

Blackboard and other learning management systems provide an amazing opportunity for faculty to deliver and transform curriculum, as well as for students to learn in exciting new ways. In Digital Media Services at Loyola University Chicago, we’re transforming our use of a Blackboard community to provide new hire training and assessment, as well as ongoing professional development to over 65 student workers. Through the use of Adobe Connect Pro, Blackboard and other open-source systems we will identify the tools and utilities, as well as best practices for developing an in-house training plan for new incoming staff. Participants will leave the session with a toolkit of materials for implementing a training program and ask questions for “next steps.”
