Creating and Sustaining an Effective Curriculum
Friday, November 17 Noon – 1:00 pm Central/1:00 – 2:00 Eastern via Zoom
With Leah Dvorak, Elizabeth Evans, and Erin Laverick
Effective curricula at Concordia are rigorous, relevant, coherent, current, experiential, explicit, and well-communicated to students. They are also aligned with the mission, university learning outcomes, and program learning outcomes. Effective academic programs result in healthy enrollment, retention, and completion numbers, demonstrate learning as expected by the faculty, and use continuous improvement. At this session, we will present tools for planning, implementing, and improving such curricula. The audience for this program includes faculty, department chairs/program directors, and deans.
Best Practices for Managing Blackboard Course Size
Friday November 10, Noon – 1:00 pm Central/1:00 – 2:00 pm Eastern via Zoom
Led by: Tyler Shadick
This session is for faculty. Blackboard courses have a finite amount of space before the maximum is reached. During this session, participants will learn best practices for sharing large files in their course such as videos and voiceover PowerPoints. We will also explain how using the course Content Collection can save additional course space and save you time when documents need updating or are shared in multiple locations within a course.
