the end of blackboard

Cal Poly Pomona's contract with Blackboard (Bb) is ending June 2023. After that time, no one will be able to retrieve anything from Blackboard. If you want to retain any materials from Blackboard, you will need to download and save those materials. CAFE will provide tutorials and workshops to help you learn how to retrieve your content, and Studio 6 can assist with troubleshooting. See our Transitioning from Blackboard site for Blackboard tutorials and our Fall workshop schedule.

Small Strategies, Important Gains

Research shows that classroom practices matter. CAFE’s focus this year is small, practical strategies that anyone can use to affect student learning and progress. But using new teaching strategies is like changing how we eat: Way easier with friends! We are working on a faculty-to-faculty peer coaching program, watch for announcements soon.
