New for 2020: OLC is offering our annual fall conference in two modalities. OLC Accelerate will be the all virtual option (virtual presenters to virtual attendees, November 9-18) and OLC Velocity will be the onsite program in Orlando (November 18-20).

The OLC Accelerate & OLC Velocity conference emphasizes the most innovative and impactful research and effective practices in the field of online, blended, and digital learning. Supporting administrators, designers, and educators alike, this conference offers a comprehensive list of sessions and activities tailored to addressing the challenges and goals of our entire community. Our curation of conference tracks and exhibits promises a cross-section of the prime topics in our field, offering exciting programming formats, myriad formal and informal networking opportunities, and a wealth of resources aligned to supporting quality online, digital and blended learning.

OLC Accelerate (virtual, November 9-18) is devoted to driving quality online learning, advancing best practice guidance and accelerating innovation in learning for academic leaders, educators, administrators, digital learning professionals and organizations around the world. This portion of the conference is presented in an all virtual format.

OLC Velocity (onsite, November 18-20) brings together individual participants and teams for active learning sessions that move presentational-style knowledge sharing into collaborative change work for immediate application within institutional contexts around the future of online and digital education.

As always, this international conference promises outstanding keynote speakers, expanded programs, and engaging workshops. Our ever-popular Technology Test Kitchen and Discovery sessions will be presented asynchronously as part of the virtual program and will once again deliver the opportunity to interact with experts in new and emerging online and digital learning technologies and topics, reinforcing why educators worldwide affirm that OLC Accelerate is the premiere conference for online learning professionals.
