Brief Abstract

Online education affords more people more opportunities to earn a college degree. The steady growth of online enrollments shows the value and importance of making online learning experiences as effective and impactful as we can. When we combine excellent instruction in digital environments with the affordances of emerging technologies, we create a synergistic opportunity to support all of our learners in their educational journeys. Let’s focus in on the potential we have to combine great teaching with great technology to help our students engage more fully and learn more effectively.

Prior to the start of the keynote, we will recognize our 2020 OLC Award winners.  Please also join us at 6:45pm US EST this evening for our Awards Gala, where we will celebrate our award winners' achievements and have the opportunity to ask them questions.
