Moderator and Participant View Blackboard Catalyst Award 0 The Blackboard Exemplary Course Program began in 2000 with the goal of identifying and disseminating best practices for designing engaging online courses. 0 Using the Exemplary Course Rubric, instructors and course designers are able to evaluate how well their own course conforms to best practices outlined in the rubric. 0 Courses that are submitted to the program will be evaluated using the rubric by a peer group of Blackboard clients. Then, a Reviewer Council reviews any course that received at least one exemplary rating. 0 From there, courses that receive two or more exemplary ratings will be reviewed by the Exemplary Course Directors to determine who will receive an Exemplary Course Award. Benefits of Participating Submitting your course for review will provide you the opportunity to: 0 Reflect on your own course design through a self-evaluation of your course and gain new perspective and insights on your course. 0 Receive detailed feedback on your own course development including best practices and areas for improvement. 0 Apply lessons learned from the Exemplary Course Rubric to your own courses or those you are helping to develop. 0 Gain professional development experience and recognition for your accomplishments and participation in the program.
