The College of Charleston Teaching and Learning Team (TLT) is offering faculty and staff free access to the Online Learning Consortium (OLC) Innovate 2020 Virtual Conference – a $210/person value.

The conference will livestream from Monday, June 15, to Friday, June 26, 2020, and will include more than 300 45-minute sessions and workshops on a variety of topics related to online teaching and course design.

With the theme of “Building Bridges in Digital, Blended and Online Learning,” this year’s conference has moved to a fully online format that spotlights the best of what the online modality affords – meaningful collaboration and the ability to reflect and connect with colleagues around the globe. The 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.

All regular sessions will be held online in Zoom, including the keynote sessions, featured sessions, education sessions and industry showcase sessions. On-demand access of all recorded sessions is provided to attendees post-conference for one year.  To access streamed sessions, participants need to be logged in to their OLC user accounts at Attendees will be able to interact with presenters and fellow conference attendees through the Zoom chat window (monitored by session chairs) as well as participate in larger conference discussions via the OLC Innovate Slack Channel.
