Rock on, SLATE! An Up Close Look at How a Blackboard User Group Has Impacted Teaching, Learning and Support of Technology in the Midwest

SLATE Celebrating 10 Years
Working in a vacuum can be daunting. Who do you turn to for best practices in teaching and learning, for advice when a challenge arises, or to assist you in managing change? More than 1500 of your peers turn to a Blackboard User Group! During this panel presentation at BbWorld 2012, my colleagues Cheryl Boncuore, Ken Sadowski, Heath Tuttle, and I shared about the professional and personal benefits received from participating in a Blackboard User Group (SLATE – Supporting Learning And Technology in Education).

Group leader, Ken Sadowski – winner of a 2011 Catalyst Award winner for Community Collaboration – has nurtured this 10-year old Midwest User Group from its humble beginnings to over 80 member institutions.
