These webinars are led by distance learning experts providing a toolbox of immediate needs to our members and the distance learning community during this time.

September 29 - October 2, 2020, Online Only. In a world where students and faculty are excited about technology, we will travel down a path of discovering a whole new world of creative advancements in technology. Students are using technology in every aspect of their lives and faculty are developing new and innovative methods to engage their students, so we want to push the boundaries and explore new ways to engage students using technology. We will focus on viewing innovation through the lens of the student, faculty, and partnerships. We live in a wonderland where technology and innovation are key - they take our classrooms to a new level for students as they prepare for jobs that don’t even exist yet. Join us in exploring new technology and changing education for the better.  Registration Now Open!
