In addition to being surrounded by leaders in higher education in the sphere of online learning and engagement, IELOL provided me with a platform to explore ideas and challenge my thinking in how to approach aspirational goals with strategic collaboration.”

“This was a fantastic week, spent with great inmates and faculty. I have learned a lot of things I would probably never experienced if only doing by myself. I am convinced, that being a part of IELOL 2018 cohort will greatly improve the quality of my work as well as my career perspectives.”

“I have really enjoyed my IELOL experience, from the early online interactions to the immersion experiences, and now looking forward to OLC Accelerate as well. Not only did it inspire me to do and be better in my leadership of our online organization, but I have had the unique opportunity to establish enriching and enduring relationships with peers for continued professional development and career development. Plus, I just got nominated for a subcommittee for NCOE and got invited to serve in an exclusive group of faculty looking at the future of STEM for an NSF grant recently – as a result of my IELOL experience!”

Participating in IELOL surpassed all of my expectations! I knew that I would have an opportunity to collaborate with other online leaders, but I had no idea how much fun, critical thinking, networking, and friendship would emerge from the experience. It was one of the best and most valuable professional development experiences that I’ve had in my career. I have already recommended that one of my colleagues apply for the 2019 cohort!

“IELOL was a wonderful experience which helped me to connect with others who are in a similar situation to me. It stretched me to apply things that we learned and was a long-term learning experience that I am so glad to have been a part of.”

Director of e-Learning, Oakland University (2016 Alumnus)

“I would recommend the IELOL program to anyone in the field of online learning in higher education. It was an amazing experience, both the online component and the face-to-face, conference-like sessions. The contacts I gained there have proven invaluable. The presentations were relevant, delivered by credible, engaging speakers. The highlight of the program was the group presentation project we did, getting to know a smaller cohort quite well. We researched and pitched an idea. Not only is that great practice, but the feedback we got from actual high-level administrators made it all worth the time. Truly a career-changing experience.”
