PLEASE NOTE THAT THE CALL FOR PAPERS IS NOW CLOSED!
In a time of tightening budgets and with the greater scrutiny from students paying large fees, university and college online learning systems are coming under increased internal and external scrutiny. Institutional responses vary. Some are looking to migrate to other systems with a lower up front cost. Others are re-prioritising developments in response to student demand (e.g. for mobile access). Some are still waiting to see how things pan out. We hope they all are remembering the learning and teaching aspects too! At this year’s Annual Durham Blackboard Users’ Conference we encourage presentations, panel discussions and workshops on any topic that relates to this theme. We’d love to hear your stories about how institutions choose to respond – to “make do or spend”. Remember that the spend may be in staff time, rather than hard cash and we welcome stories of responses at any scale.
This year we are offering a range of time slots:
- 40 minutes (30 minute presentation + 10 minute Q & A)
- 25 minutes (15 minute presentation + 10 minute Q & A)
- 60 minutes (Panel Discussion – to include multiple institutions)
- 40 minute Workshops
All papers are peer reviewed and you will be notified w/c 3 December of the results.
