Brief Abstract

Community college educators are at the forefront of design and implementation of unique digital programs for diverse populations. Online programs help us meet the demands of a fluid workforce and varied student demographic. We must be learning engineers in the truest sense as we provide structure and infrastructure to sustainable and adaptable programs. 

Join our one-day design challenge event, where you will team up with learning engineers from around the world to share resources, identify gaps, and discover solutions together. Our panelists will prompt discussions with design anecdotes, directing you to consider all the components of quality online, web-based and blended programs. By building on the knowledge base of your design team and incorporating the components of effective design and pillars of quality education, participants will collectively engineer design plans suitable for any institution. Attendees need not attend all sessions to participate. Each session will offer implementable takeaways.

The CC Summit option is included in your OLC Innovate Virtual Conference 2020 registration fee. There is no additional registration fee to participate in the summit.
