Innovation, particularly in online education, is achieved through continuous visionary leadership from all disciplines, and by challenging existing teaching and learning structures to reimagine the learning experience. Learn from leaders in the field and engage in critical conversations with colleagues from all disciplines at the Online Learning Consortium (OLC) Innovate conference, the premier conference devoted to innovation online learning - all without leaving NIU. All NIU faculty, staff, and graduate teaching assistants are able to attend OLC Innovate 2017 online for free and from the comfort of your office or home.

This year, OLC Innovate seeks to answer key questions in online learning - How can we set the stage for our students to emerge as the creators of knowledge and drivers of scholarship? How will we leverage data and research to establish impactful change both within and across institutions? How will our work as practitioners and leaders foster a culture of innovation? Through outstanding keynote speakers and sessions led by renowned leaders in online learning, virtual conference attendees will interact with other online educators to learn and network.
