The OLC Field Guide program is designed to enhance the conference experience for first-time conference attendees and provide opportunities for anyone who is looking for additional OLC conference networking opportunities.
The Technology Test Kitchen, simply put, is designed to provide you with hands-on learning experiences that will support your online teaching and learning efforts. Designed as an exploratory installation, the space is run by “chefs” who will guide you through hands-on exercises focused on practical technology applications to solve your unique pedagogical challenges. Those new to online technology and design as well as seasoned veterans are very welcome to visit, explore, and take part in the Technology Test Kitchen activities.
The best part of any conference are the informal conversations that occur in the hallways after an interesting session and at the end of the day. To close the gap between virtual and in-person attendance, we are creating a virtual lounge where participants can ask follow up questions of presenters, talk to the Keynote speakers, and have conversations with other virtual attendees.
Many of us in education are engaged in work that seeks to create and promote diverse and inclusive learning environments. The Diversity & Inclusion Committee aims to leverage that knowledge and passion to elevate the OLC Accelerate conference experience.
A healthy new opportunity for exchanging big ideas on the move, networking with colleagues, all while absorbing some much needed Orlando sunshine. Join OLC Field Guides for a daily escape and themed discussion (see below) as we look to take a break from traditional sessions and collectively exercise our bodies and minds.
Presenter Services is dedicated to enhancing the conference experience for all attendees by offering specialized coaching to presenters. Our goal is to offer guidance on best practices in audience engagement strategies, slide design, and delivery skills necessary to ensure a successful conference session.
