Training/Faculty Development

Did you miss TSUS Faculty Development Day this summer? We have the Recordings!


2023 Development Day

Each summer SHSU Online hosts a day-long faculty development event in support of teaching and learning in The Texas State University System. This year’s TSUSDEV conference took place on July 14, 2023. If you had a busy summer or were on vacation and couldn’t attend, don’t fret! All of the #TSUSDEV23 recordings are available on Blackboard!

This year’s event had a strong focus on Ultra Course View. As TSUS Shared Services institutions make the transition from Blackboard Original to Ultra Course View, it is important that instructors from all partner institutions feel equipped, supported, and connected.

Presenters included the SHSU Online team, Anthology (Blackboard), as well as representatives from the SHSU Professional and Academic Center for Excellence (PACE).

A few notable sessions:

  • Flexible Grading in Ultra Course View
  • ID Panel: Secrets from your Instructional Designers
  • Styling your Ultra Course View Courses – Making Them Look Good
  • Not so-Hidden Features in Ultra Courses
  • Engaging Students in Synchronous Online Meetings – New Certification Preview
  • Plus many more!

Accessing Session Recordings

All of the TUSUDEV23 session recordings and presentations are available in the Instructor Support Org (Teaching Online with Blackboard) under the Organizations tab in Blackboard. They can be found in the Webinar Recordings Folder. Just look for TSUS Faculty Development Day 2023!
