The University Teaching & Learning Commons (UTLC), Information Technology Services (ITS), and UNCG Online have chipped in to get the unlimited, campus wide pass, for the upcoming Online Learning Consortium (OLC) Innovate Education Reimagined Virtual Conference (March 15-19, 2021). 

It is more critical than ever that academic leaders, faculty, and administrators alike come together to ensure that our pedagogies are progressive, organic, and continually break new ground. OLC is committed to creating equitable spaces where academics, practitioners, students, and staff can work together across their unique experiences to build truly inclusive communities, learning environments, and support experiences.

That’s why we’re inviting you to join us at Innovate 2021, a fully online conference presented by Online Learning Consortium and MERLOT. Together we will challenge our teaching and learning paradigms, reimagine the learning experience, and ideate on how disruptions in education today will shape the innovative classroom of tomorrow.

Per OLC, you can register from this link but it is unique to UNCG registration, and participants should register only with their organization-affiliated email address.
