The third annual conference of the Virginia Blackboard Users Group (VaBUG) will be held in Fairfax, VA, on the main campus of George Mason University, on Friday, September 21, 2012 from 8:30 am to 4 pm.

This year’s focus will be “EXPANDING THE CLASSROOM: DOING MORE WITH DIGITAL CONTENT.” The conference is open to all faculty, staff, and administrators, and is completely free of charge. A continental breakfast and lunch will be served during the event. For more information, please see the Meetings and Conferences area of the website at http://vabug.net.

VaBUG is still seeking presentation proposals as well. This is a chance to share knowledge and experience with your colleagues across the state of Virginia. In order to afford our membership the best possible personal and professional development opportunities, we are asking instructors, administrators, staff members, and any other interested members to submit proposals for concurrent sessions for this year’s conference. Please consider participating as a presenter, or if you can, please pass this message along to someone you feel may be interested in participating. The Call for Proposals deadline has been extended to Friday, August 24th.

We hope you will join us for this exciting and informative event!

The Virginia Blackboard Users Group is made up of members from over 40 K-12 and higher education institutions across the state. The mission of the Virginia Blackboard Users Group is to facilitate communication between educational institutions in the state of Virginia who use Blackboard as a learning management system. With that communication, it is our intent to share knowledge, promote best practices, and educate each other in order to continually improve our respective online learning environments. VaBUG is currently being led by George Hoffman from the Center for Teaching and Learning.
