Keegan - Innovate 2017

OLC Innovate 2020, OLC’s annual conference focused on innovations in research, practice, leadership, and technologies in online and digital learning, takes place March 31-April 3, 2020 in Chicago, Illinois.

We wanted to personally invite you to attend Innovate 2020.

OLC Innovate is one of the premier national conferences for digital and online learning and is known for a series of engaging hands-on sessions aimed at fostering organic interactions and collaborative cross-disciplinary problem-solving.

Together we will build new foundations for stronger, better higher education environments. And because innovation scales best when ideas are shared, our work sessions will explore digital technologies and adapted teaching behaviors aimed at informing policy, inspiring leadership, and evolving practice at all levels impacting institutions, universities, and colleges.

Attendees can choose from over 400 sessions spanning a wide variety of topics and special interest areas, including online teaching and learning, ed-tech, leadership accessibility, gamification, K-12, open educational resources, and many more.

This year’s keynote speakers for Innovate 2020 include:


Zeynep Tufekci Wednesday Keynote:A Pedagogy for the Digital Age
Zeynep Tufekci, associate professor at the University of North Carolina, author, and opinion writer
Flower Darby Thursday Keynote: Empowering Students to Engage and Learn
