Texas Blackboard Users Group - Call for Proposals

The T-BUG Conference Committee welcomes your proposals for the
2010 Annual Conference in Abilene.

The annual T-BUG conference is a great opportunity for Blackboard users to discover, discuss, learn, and share best practices in using the Blackboard, CE and Vista, and Angel learning management systems.

This year’s conference will be held October 21-23, 2010 in Abilene at Hardin-Simmons University. In Abilene,the frontier spirit is alive and well and just like this frontier town, our conference theme - "Blazin' New Trails on the Blackboard Frontier” - encourages attendees to explore and push the frontier of online learning and its technologies.

October 21 - Pre-Conference Workshops and Vendor Reception
October 22-23 - Conference

We encourage you to “blaze some trails” of your own by participating in the conference as a pre-conference or break-out session presenter! We are especially happy to invite Angel users to participate.

Pre-conference sessions will be 3 hours long - either in the morning or the afternoon. We encourage hands-on sessions.
Break-out sessions will be 50 minutes long, which includes time for questions and answers. Presentations should be designed to encourage audience interaction. Breakout sessions are organized along these tracks:

  • Teaching and Learning
  • Support & Program Administration
  • Professional Development
  • System Administration
  • Pre K-12

Please submit proposals here. The deadline for proposal submission is August 15, 2010.

The program committee will review proposals and notify you of your proposal’s status by August 30, 2010. Please note that all presenters must register for the conference. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide discounts - hey, our $250 registration is one of the best deals around!

If you have questions, please contact Christine Salmon, Program Committee Chair at We look forward to hearing from you!

T-BUG Program Committee Chair
