#OLCAccelerate | The virtual learning event for people who excel at virtual learning

Nov 5, 2020 3:50:00 PM

In 2020 we’ve experienced just how flexible teaching and learning can be when the people dedicated to its practice--you--decide to get things done. This year, the Online Learning Consortium has fully reimagined the conference experience, to deliver a fully virtual experience.

Next week, from November 9 to November 18, a global network of researchers and practitioners will meet virtually to share their expertise--and we’ll be there!

With over 400 sessions to choose from, OLC Accelerate offers something for everyone. We’ll be focusing on student engagement--a timely topic as instructors and students are looking for new ways to connect with each other in supportive learning environments. 

Come visit with us at our virtual exhibit hall or attend one of our sessions. And yes, there’s bling. If you visit us at any of these venues, you’ll be entered for a chance to win Apple AirPods
