Come enjoy a reflective space while you recharge your brain and your devices! The PlugIN Lounge acts as the physical hub for an expanded OLC Innovate 2017 conference experience that aims to be inclusive, integrative, and experiential for virtual and physical conference participants alike. The PlugIN Lounge features the following learning opportunities:

  • Tech Help Desk: Having issues with wifi access? Not sure how to navigate around the OLC Conference mobile app? Laptop is acting up? Stop by our Tech Help Desk for the expert assistance you need! Open during regular conference hours. 
  • Emerging Ideas Sessions: These brief one-on-one presentations are designed to add new members and energy to your current personal learning networks. Designed to be highly interactive for on-site participants, Emerging Ideas Sessions provide opportunities for soliciting feedback, forming collaborative relationships, and sparking new ideas. Emerging Idea Sessions take place in the PlugIn Lounge during each concurrent session. Come explore!
  • Blogger Bars: Take advantage of the individual workspaces we call “blogger bars” where you can gather your thoughts, reflect on what you’ve learned, and restore the mental and electronic devices powering you through the conference experience. We’ll provide some reflection questions, as well as a place to share your blog posts so we can help drive traffic to your thoughts.
