OLC Leadership Network Event
Join us for OLC’s Leadership Network Event, where we bring together digital leaders from academics, non-profits, and the private sector to discuss digital education strategy across the institution. Increasingly, the changing educational landscape along with the rise of alternative educational providers have opened new pathways and opportunities in digital leadership, research and collaboration. Digital leaders are guiding initiatives at traditional academic institutions and non-profits, developing new products and approaches within the private sector, and working to establish policies and regulations within government. We see ever increasing demand for cross-sector collaborations led by digital leaders across an increasingly diverse educational landscape. Join us at this half-day event for featured presentations and small group discussions on opportunities for digital leaders, both established and emerging, in embedding digital strategy within the mission, goals and initiatives of entire institutions and organizations.

June 18, 12:15pm – 1:00pm US EDT – Building Institutional Strategy Embedded with Digital
Creating institutional capacity for ensuring student success in our ever-changing educational landscape requires digital transformation across organizations. This session will provide leaders of all levels and expertise concrete examples, resources and calls to action for establishing institutional strategy that is supported by leading-edge online and digital learning strategy.
- Lead Presenters: Mary Niemiec, Liz Ciabocchi
- Moderator: Jennifer Mathes
June 18, 2:30pm to 3:15pm US EDT – Managing Up, Down and Across the Online Enterprise
Building and sustaining online efforts that focus on quality, inclusion and impact must begin with securing “institutional buy-in”. This session will focus on strategies and resources for establishing a foundational space for creativity and innovation that encompasses the mission and goals of the entire institution (and not just the fully-online enterprise as an isolated silo).
- Lead Presenter: Vincent Del Casino, Jr.
- Moderator: Mary Niemiec
June 18, 4:45pm to 5:30pm US EDT – Vision 2030 – Futurecasting Needs for Leadership in the Next Decade
In these unprecedented times, online and digital leaders must come together to guide initiatives and critical support for the success of all learners, particularly across a landscape where quality, access, and support are not equitably present. This panel brings together members of the online community to provide focus for our collective actions in both the short term and the long term, helping us to advance quality digital teaching and learning experiences.
- Moderator: Angela Gunder
- Panelists: Ron Legon (Quality Matters), Melissa Vito (University of Texas at San Antonio), Tanya Joosten (University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee), Craig Weidemann (Pennsylvania State University)
