The Online Learning Consortium and Inside Higher Ed are teaming up to co-host a robust Leadership Network convening at the OLC Accelerate conference in Orlando on Tuesday, November 14, 2017. Together, we will offer a robust schedule that highlights the 2017 Survey of Faculty Attitudes on Technology. Specifically, guest speakers, facilitated sessions, and a panel will focus on the topic of cultivating a culture of faculty acceptance, engagement, and excellence in online education through policy, professional development, and research-to-practice initiatives.
After each presentation, attendees, presenters, and facilitators will gather in small groups to discuss, collaborate and tackle the issues at hand. The convening will culminate with a panel discussion moderated by Doug Lederman, co-founder and editor of Inside Higher Ed, followed by a reception.
