The 2014 VA Bug Conference will take place on Friday, October 24, 2014 in Roanoke, VA at the Holiday Inn at Valley View. No, it is not a conference for Entomologists or Pest Control Professionals. It is the 5th AnnualÂ conference for the VirginiaÂ Blackboard Users Group, a ragtag team of rogue LMS users meeting in secret toÂ share knowledge and ideas with Blackboard users from across theÂ Commonwealth.Â
Of course, you probably know this already but October in the Roanoke ValleyÂ is simply exquisite,Â with the luminousÂ fall foliage at its peak. The Holiday Inn at Valley View is located just a fewÂ miles off of Interstate 81 and is short distance from Roanoke’sÂ historic downtown market area. It is also just a short drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway, where you can take inÂ the beautiful fall colors.
Registration is, ahem, FREE. Â The call for proposals will go out soon for presentations in the following areas:
- Blackboard administration
- Instructional design
- Faculty best practices
- K-12 best practices
