NUIT hosts faculty learning forums for both new and current users of the Blackboard-based Course Management System (CMS). Each hour-long session covers a specific topic and is designed for instructors to discuss and discover information about building and maintaining their course sites as well as to address individual ideas, questions, and concerns.
Learning forums for the upcoming academic quarter are offered in-person and registration is required. There is no limit to the number of learning forums a user can attend. All sessions are free of charge.
On May 7, you are invited to attend a new NUIT Tech Talk webinar, Tips and Tricks for the CMS Grade Center. This 45-minute webinar is designed to help you get the most out of creating/grading assignments and monitoring student progress using this essential grading tool before and after the planned system upgrade in June. Register to attend.
On July 9 and August 29, you are invited to attend a learning forum, Using Rubrics in Blackboard to Enhance Learning and Teaching. This 90-minute seminar will help instructors understand the benefits of using rubrics and how to evaluate rubrics. Instructors will create rubrics during this engaging seminar. Register to attend.
In addition, University schools and departments may request special on-site learning forums for their area. After attending a learning forum, users can share feedback about their experience through the CMS Learning Forum online survey.
All Learning Forums are held in the University Library, room 2699C.
