The ‘Blackboard module review form’ is a developmental tool you can use to audit or benchmark your module and is aligned with the University Blackboard Threshold Standards. It is designed to:
- Encourage and facilitate effective practice with Blackboard,
- And enable a cycle of continuous improvement.
The form provides a template to enable a comparative qualitative review of a module. It can be adapted to suit your purpose and local requirements.
You can use this form for self and/or peer review (as per the University’s policy on the Peer review of learning and teaching). The categories and criteria in the form can be used to guide professional and supportive dialogue between ‘peer reviewer’ and ‘peer reviewee’ to enable reflection on the management and structure of online learning materials and activities in Blackboard modules. You may wish to:
- Select a couple of the categories to theme your review and carry out a ‘deep-dive’ on one or more of your Blackboard modules,
- Or conduct a broader review of one or more modules, across all the categories to provide a baseline of your current online provision.
It can also be used:
- As part of impact and evaluation work looking at the move to flexible online teaching and learning since Autumn Term 2020.
- With students to frame their feedback and view the module through the lens of the learner.
