Join us at the Digital Learning Equity and Innovation (DLEI) Summit, set against the backdrop of the magnificent Colorado Rockies on April 9-10, 2024. This event precedes the OLC Innovate 2024 conference (April 10-13, 2024 at the Gaylord Rockies) and brings together leading minds to explore the intersection of digital innovation and educational equity. Engage in active, experiential sessions focused on creating inclusive, actionable strategies that address the unique needs and goals of our learners, particularly BIPOC, poverty-affected, and first-generation learners. Whether you’re an educator, designer, administrator, or student, this summit is an essential platform for those dedicated to reimagining education through equitable digital learning.
