This summer, Blackboard’s annual eLearning mecca, Blackboard World, can be found in Austin, Texas from July 23 to July 25. For those that have not had the benefit of attending a Blackboard World, it is one of the biggest eLearning conferences of the year. The fact that it is taking place in Austin this July, makes it much more convenient for travel and professional development budgets.
Attendance at this years’ event will allow you to become more familiar with technology and tools already in place at SHSU and learn how other instructors and institutions are improving the learner experience. You can attend tailored conference sessions specific to higher education to gain valuable techniques for creating richer, more dynamic courses for your learners.
See the links below for the Blackboard World website, #BbWorld19 Registration and how you can present at #BbWorld19.
Members of the SHSU Online team will be attending and hopefully presenting this year, so you can lean on us for any questions you have about the conference.
If you plan on attending, we advise packing walking shoes and mobile chargers. Walking shoes because there are so many sessions to chose from and mobile chargers because your mobile devices will be busy sharing all of the great things you learn while at #BbWorld19.
