What a wild ride these past two years have been! Our skills as educators, leaders, innovators, tinkerers, and bricoleurs were put to the ultimate test. We pivoted, iterated, and reimagined. Now, it is time to (re)connect and move forward. We are facing a new reality, one where offline and online integrate and complement each other seamlessly. To reflect this new reality, this year’s OLC Innovate conference will take place both virtually (March 28-April 1, 2022) and onsite in Dallas, Texas at the Gaylord Texan (April 11-14, 2022). 

This year’s program promises to deliver conversations, interactions, and collaborations around innovations in research, practice, and technologies. As our institutions shape and adapt to this dynamic reality, OLC Innovate 2022 provides a path for innovators of all experience levels and backgrounds to share best practices, test new ideas, and collaborate on driving forward online, blended, and digital education. Come join us in a newly reimagined OLC Innovate experience, one that offers flexible pathways to participate, learn, and engage, before, during, and after the conference. Be sure to sign up for updates and check out this page, to receive more information on all the great experiences OLC Innovate has in store:

  • Inspiring professional development experiences facilitated by practitioners from around the world
  • Spaces and activities to share and advance your own research, leadership, and practice
  • Access to the most advanced and novel practices to support online, digital, and blended learning
  • Unmatched networking opportunities, based on your particular interests
  • An innovative new program for leaders

We are ever-so-grateful for the amazing members and volunteers of the OLC Community, who have helped create and shape the #OLCInnovate experience. Can’t wait to (re)connect with all of you!
