CET Wins Blackboard Catalyst Award

The Center for Educational Technologies (CET) at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Science (CVM) was named the winner of the Blackboard Catalyst Awards program’s Student Impact Award, which recognizes individuals and institutions that have successfully increased levels of student engagement or retention. The center is led by Dr. Jody Korich, Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Veterinary Integrative Biosciences

New to the Blackboard Catalyst Award Program this year, the Student Impact Award was created to honor successful efforts to address the major educational issues of student engagement and retention. Award winners were selected from dozens of submissions as the best examples of improving engagement and retention through new academic, student support, or administrative strategies.

The Blackboard Catalyst Awards program annually recognizes and honors innovation and excellence in the Blackboard global community of practice, where teachers and learners work every day to redefine what is possible when leveraging technology.

“It’s an honor each year to recognize forward-thinking educators who are helping create a world inspired to learn through the work they do every day,” said Jay Bhatt, Blackboard CEO. “We congratulate Catalyst Award winners on their vision and innovative approaches to education, and celebrate their accomplishments with them.”

CET will be honored alongside other Blackboard Catalyst Award winners during BbWorld®, Blackboard’s annual user conference to be held in July in Las Vegas, Nev.
