Faculty Development Community at Lesley

A new faculty community has been created in myLesley as a central place to share information and events from the Dean of Faculty Office and eLearning and Instructional Support. The community is still a work in progress so if there’s content you want to see and would find helpful please let us know.

A key element of the Faculty Development community will be events calendar. The calendar will list events sponsored by the Center for Teaching, Learning and Scholarship, eLearning and Instructional Support, Faculty Development and the Provost Office. We will also post relevant events by other Lesley offices.

Blackboard IM Workshop Alert

Lesley University has a new collaboration tool called Blackboard Instant Messenger (BB IM). BB IM combines Skype’s audio and video call capability with some light webinar tools that allow students and faculty to easily work together online.

  • Use text, audio and video chat for one-on-one or group conversations.
  • Collaborate visually using the whiteboard.
  • Share your computer screen, documents and websites.
  • See when your students or classmates are online.

eLIS will be hosting a workshop by a Collaborate trainer to introduce you to BB IM. The workshop has two parts. Both are fully online so you can access them from anywhere with a decent internet connection.

Part 1: Communication with BB IM – Wednesday, October 24 at 1-3pm ET
Part 2: Collaborating with BB IM – Wednesday, October 31 at 1-3pm ET
