Blackboard Faculty Showcase 2016

Each summer, a cohort of 10-12 instructors participate in an online course development process utilizing the Quality Matters (QM) design rubric.  Quality Matters is a set of best practices and industry standards for online course design.  Instructors attend a 2-day workshop on QM implementation, creating accessible content, and using advanced Blackboard tools and technology integration.  In the fall, these instructors select one aspect of their courses to "showcase" during an on-campus presentation.   

In 2016, the showcase spanned two days and included 12 presenters with 12 unique topics.
