Faculty & Staff

**UPDATED**RSVP for December Blackboard Boot Camp Series

Our December series of Blackboard Boot Camp, offered by the Teaching & Learning Center, is quickly approaching.

An intense, fast-paced workshop series with hands-on activities covering many of the basic Blackboard tools, Blackboard Boot Camp is recommended for faculty planning to teach online or hybrid courses or looking to more fully supplement their face-to-face courses.

This series is designed for both full-time and adjunct faculty who wish to use Blackboard as a supplemental course tool. Both novice and experienced users can benefit from the series.

View the full schedule, as well as a complete workshop description and comments from past participants at December 2016 Blackboard Boot Camp.  Please plan to attend all four face-to-face sessions to fulfill the requirements of Blackboard Boot Camp.

  • Wednesday, December 14 – Part I will focus on customizing your Blackboard course navigation menu and learning how to effectively use the instructor Control Panel.
  • Tuesday, December 20 – Part II tackles adding, organizing, and managing content within your Blackboard courses, as well as using collaborative tools like the discussion forum.
  • Wednesday, December 21 – Part III takes an in-depth look into assessment and evaluation tools available within Blackboard.
  • Thursday, December 22 – Part IV will wrap-up with discussion and application of additional Blackboard tools and features.

All sessions are scheduled from 9 am – noon in Room TC218 on the East Peoria Campus.  Attendees are welcome to spend time in the afternoon – or during the week between sessions – working in the TLC on the skills you learned during the morning session.

RSVP to the Teaching & Learning Center: Room 240A, [email protected], or (309) 694-8908.
