Faculty Invited to Attend Michigan Blackboard Users Group Meeting 3/18/11

mibug logoThis Friday at the Michigan Blackboard Users Group Meeting at Grand Valley State University, Garry Brand and Mursalata Muhammad from GRCC will be presenting.  They are presenting on the following topics:

Using Tools that Students Use

Students use social media, video, search and mobile technologies to learn. Too often, we take them out of that environment and “deliver content” through a “learning management system.” When is the last time you saw a student using a discussion board outside Blackboard? Join us as we explore how the latest version of Blackboard integrates blogs, wikis, journals, YouTube, instant messaging, mobile and other emerging technologies into the learning process. – Garret Brand, GRCC Business Professor

Partnerships Through the Using Blackboard Technology

This break out shares an example for how technology is useful in creating unique learning environments where community partners can serve as co-educators in classrooms that emphasize civically engaged curriculum like service-learning. – Mursalata Muhammad, GRCC English Professor
