Dear Commons Community,
I leave today for Orlando to attend the Annual Online Learning Consortium (formerly Sloan-C) Conference. The theme of this year’s conference is Shaping the Future of Online Learning. The program and speakers are first-rate and include a keynote by Goldie Blumenstyck, from The Chronicle of Higher Education. The title of her presentation is American Higher Education in Crisis: Myths and Realities.
All of the details about the program are available at the Conference website.
Below is a welcome and quick overview from Patsy Moskal, the Conference Chair.
It is my pleasure to invite you to the 21tst Annual Online Learning Consortium International Conference! This year’s promises outstanding keynotes, features sessions and workshops. In addition, our Technology Test Kitchen and Discovery sessions will once again provide you with the opportunity to interact with experts in new and emerging technologies and topics, reinforcing why this is the premiere conference in online learning.
Our variety of conference tracks and exhibits promise to offer something for everyone involved with ensuring the 21st century of online learning provides the highest quality educational experience. Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival culinary and entertainment event offers networking opportunities—or, for the young-at-heart, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party provides a fun night at the Magic Kingdom. On behalf of the conference steering committee, we look forward to seeing you in beautiful, sunny Orlando in October!
Patsy Moskal, Conference Chair
