With support from Blackboard’s global community, OSU is partnering with Blackboard to bring you a faculty training webinar series entitled The Blackboard Innovative Teaching Series (BITS). This program will bring best practices and evolved online pedagogy training to you in a concise and effective series consisting of weekly training webinars that have been designed for educators and will be led by your peers and product experts.
All educators are invited to join, regardless of your technical know-how or experience using Blackboard or other learning management solutions. To help you better gauge which sessions to attend, the webinars are divided into three tracks: Getting Started, Collaboration, and Assessing Learners.
More information about the tracks, the schedule, and registration can be found at http://www.blackboard.com/bits. All webinars are recorded and available online.
