Together we will challenge our teaching and learning paradigms, reimagine the learning experience, and ideate on how disruptions in education today will shape the innovative classroom of tomorrow.

We are all about asking questions, doing better research, partnering with educational technology and creating a better future where more students learn and accomplish their goals. The new conference program starts with a night of insightful hot topics incorporating fun and New Orleans to be followed by an excellent keynote from Angie McArthur, co-author of Collaborative Intelligence and speaker on intellectual diversity.


The program team received twice the number of proposals expected (thanks Paige, Jane, Laura & Jess).


We know you will find sessions that stretch your thinking and make you question how innovation happens at your institution! The conference will provide great networking conversation, and opportunities for collaboration. And that gets us started with great networking conversations.


OLC Innovate has been designed to be different, and to connect us as a community that thrives in this rapidly changing learning environment. We hope you will join us in New Orleans!
