Making the Most of Your Virtual Experience
The best part of any conference is the informal conversation that occurs in the hallways after an interesting session and at the end of the day. To close the gap between virtual attendance 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. We will also introduce an unconference component to OLC Innovate. Participants will suggest topics of conversation and then have open, roundtable discussions to identify key questions for online educational innovation and share their answers. The main Zoom room of OLC Live will be open for anyone, and it will be accessible both from the OLC website and via social media links. The room can hold up to 500 participants and also streams for unlimited further viewers.
Even if you cannot join the conference in Nashville in person, you can still stay deeply engaged in the sessions, activities and networking at #OLCInnovate as a Virtual Participant. One of the primary goals of the OLC Live! is to provide you with up-to-the minute information on the places and spaces where you can connect with the entire conference group. The virtual sessions listed below come in a wide variety of formats and flavors, to include presentations, featured sessions, panels, and industry showcases.
