SLN, CPD and Other Workshops

Our workshops are characterized by equal emphasis on using the medium effectively (LMS, online tools, emerging technologies) and teaching practice (direct instruction, instructional design). SLN offers professional development workshops and resources for all levels of teaching online.

The SLN SOLSummit, sponsored by the SUNY Learning Network (SLN), is an annual SUNY-wide conference specifically for online instructional designers, directors of online learning, and those interested in online learning environment support, services, and best practices.
The first Summit was held in 1998 as an annual face to face meeting of the SLN faculty development and instructional design team and the online campus-based SUNY instructional designers (also known at that time as MIDs) whose campuses participated in the SLN program. Today, the SLN SOLSummit is open to anyone regardless of their CMS, SUNY, or SLN affiliation.

What: Self-paced Blackboard TrainingNewly redesigned and updated versions of SLN’s two self-paced migration training courses, Introduction to Blackboard Learn (Tier 1) and Intermediate Blackboard Learn (Tier 2), are now available for use by faculty. The two courses provide tutorials, best-practices, and exercises for faculty new to teaching in Blackboard Learn.
Introduction to Blackboard Learn is designed to prepare faculty to work within a hybrid course or web-enhanced course, but is not sufficient for creating a new fully online course. Faculty who are teaching a fully-online course, or who use Blackboard extensively in their hybrid or web-enhanced course, will want to complete the second training course, Intermediate Blackboard Learn, as well.
How: Registration is free. and faculty can complete the course on SLN’s bbsupport site. For more information or for access to the courses, please don’t hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
