Recognition as an OLC Fellow is conferred upon individual members of the Online Learning Consortium by the OLC Board of Directors for outstanding work with online learning, extraordinary contributions to the field, distinguished service to OLC, and extraordinarily leadership. Special attention is given to an individual’s contributions in one or more areas represented by the OLC Pillars.
Recipients will be recognized at the next OLC Accelerate conference.
Nominations and Submissions

A Fellow Selection Committee will be appointed by the OLC Board President and will have responsibility for managing the nomination process, for evaluating all nominations submitted, and for recommending a limited number of candidates to the Board of Directors for selection.
