Blackboard Academy offers high quality professional development for educators, by educators through cohort-model series, stand-alone and self-paced courses that focus on digital learning best practices, empowering educators to drive innovation within their institutions.

Our Courses

Digital Teaching and Learning Series

The Digital Teaching and Learning Series is also offered to individual faculty and support staff in fully online courses. Be part of a global cohort of educators seeking to develop and certify their digital teaching knowledge and skills.

Learning Analytics Series

The Blackboard Academy Learning Analytics Series guides educators and instructional designers on critical concepts for integrating data-informed practices into their day-to-day workflows. While the courses are platform agnostic, we review, discuss, and interact with core Blackboard Learn Analytics reports. These courses provide foundational concepts for creating a culture of data-informed action and explore the nuance of student engagement, course design, and learning outcome data.

Transitioning to Online Teaching

The Transitioning to Online Teaching Series consists of a bundle of self-paced courses covering the most relevant aspects of online teaching, including facilitation and pedagogies, assessments, course design and support for the online learner. The courses can be taken individually and in any order.
