About the Community College Summit

Kickoff your OLC Innovate 2017 conference experience with a lively exchange amongst your colleagues and peers on the ways that community colleges are supporting the diverse needs of our learners within and beyond higher education.

This inaugural event will feature conversations and collaborative ideation activities focused on identifying challenges and creating effective practices around the following topics:

 

  • Increasing access to learning content through open educational resources and affordable learning solutions
  • Highlighting student voices on success in higher education
  • Equity in education and promoting learning environments that foster diversity and inclusion
  • Measuring quality and effectiveness with innovative learning spaces
This summit is not your typical, sit-and-get type of session. Rather participants will engage in a series of collaborative reflections within a shared, interactive document. Scribes at separate tables will write down the ideas shared at the table, with these same ideas used to drive the discussion of the summit panelists in sessions immediately following the table reflections. Come ready to create new knowledge with your colleagues and share innovative approaches to breaking down barriers to student success.
