The Blackboard Innovative Teaching Series (BITS) is a training initiative by Blackboard to share the top strategies and pedagogy for both increasing educator efficiency and improving learning outcomes. BITS is free to Blackboard’s clients (including NIU) and is easy for NIU faculty to participate. The program consists of weekly faculty training webinars that are taught by faculty and supported by Blackboard experts.
