Attend #OLCwELD

Do you think outside the box when it comes to the teaching, research, and scholarship? You can explore doing just that at the OLC Collaborate with Emerging Learning Design Conference, focused on the theme “Where Teaching, Learning, and Technology Converge.” OLC Collaborate with Emerging Learning Design is conveniently located in the NYC metropolitan area. This three day event, May 31 - June 2, 2017, offers a variety of session types and content. For more information, visit http://bit.ly/olcweld.

At only $295 for all three days, including breakfast and lunch, you’d be hard pressed to find a professional development event that is a better value for the dollar. We are also offering on-campus housing that is 40% less expensive than the nearest hotel locations, and far more convenient.

Check out our video for OLC Collaborate with Emerging Learning Design https://youtu.be/Gwa8_BiJ_xs or http://bit.ly/olcweld for more information - and please share the video and conference link with anyone you believe would find this valuable.

Education is, and always will be, a changing environment. That is why, as educators, we will always be looking to improve the way we teach and learn. With the continued reduction of resources to higher education, it is more important now than ever to be working across departmental and institutional silos. This is where OLC and ELD can help.

OLC and ELD have a community of faculty, instructional designers, librarians, and more that share an interest in pedagogy and how technology can better enhance or transform it. Take the steps to secure your spot at OLC Collaborate with Emerging Learning Design by following the link to learn more about us and register at bit.ly/olcweld.
