While students appreciate the fact that faculty across campus are now almost universally using Blackboard, we have seen how the platform can both facilitate and frustrate learning. The Exemplary Course Program (ECP) is a great resource to help you organize both your pedagogical thinking and your LMS approach. Dr. Claire Stuve will be our seasoned guide in pursuing student engagement in face-to-face classes through the ECP rubric and our choices in Blackboard.
Across the three planned sessions at UNI, Dr. Stuve will 1) introduce f-2-f faculty to the ECP rubric as a way to organize our thinking about course design and delivery [March], 2) give faculty a chance to look take a look inside other people’s courses, critiquing design and delivery efforts as they are manifested in Bb [April], and 3) reflect on the extraordinary disruptions of '20-'21 with an eye toward preserving what was gained while moving forward from some of the less-than-helpful practices that emerged from our well-intentioned crisis responses [May].
Dr. Claire Stuve is Director of Curriculum Development, Testing Services, and Research for University College at the University of Toledo. She has taught nutrition, mathematics, and instructional technology, and her courses have garnered international awards and received recognition from both Blackboard and Quality Matters. She has twice been awarded Blackboard’s Exemplary Course Program award.
