OLC Leadership Network: A National Collaboration of Senior Online Learning Leaders

The face of higher education leadership is changing. Let’s take the lead together. 

 

Convening at our OLC Innovate conference in New Orleans on Tuesday, April 4th, 2017, this half-day event will feature presentations, small group discussion, and networking.  Dennis Devery, Vice President of Institutional Planning & Research at Thomas Edison State University, will provide presentations that cover key topics and issues pertaining to strategic planning processes at institutions including:

  • How to link an institution’s mission to the institution’s strategic plan and strategic goals,
  • How the higher education environment will influence the strategic plan and the use of SWOT analysis to inform development of the strategic plan, and  
  • How to operationalize the strategic plan including development of the supporting business plan, synchronization matrix, operational plans and the strategic plan assessment process. 

After each presentation, we will gather in small groups to discuss, collaborate and tackle the issues at hand. The day will culminate with an interactive discussion to collectively address the shared insights, key trends, and leadership direction unearthed during the half-day event.

Registration fee for the Leadership Network is $205 early bird rate through Feb 8th; $235 starting on Feb 9th.  Registration for the OLC Innovate conference is separate.
