OLC Accelerate 2019 - Accelerating Online Education Worldwide
Call for Proposals Deadline Extended to June 3
Hello Michael,

Does the end of the school year have you running behind schedule? Good news…we’ve extended the OLC Accelerate 2019 submission deadline to help you out. You now have until midnight ET on June 3rd to submit your presentation!

The Program Committee seeks your proposals for interactive sessions that engage and inform participants in four primary categories.

  • Express Workshops (exploration)
  • Gamified Sessions (highly interactive)
  • Discovery Sessions (conversational)
  • Education Sessions (traditional lecture or panel interview)
Submissions should reflect and showcase our vibrant community of practice — promoting theory, research, methodology and/or applied effective practices in online, blended, and web-enhanced teaching and learning. Both research and evidence-based proposals are encouraged for submission.

Please review the tracks and session types carefully and select the categories most closely aligned with your proposal.

Learner Services and Support
This track focuses on issues and approaches to providing academic services and support, accessibility, and readiness preparation for those students who study at a distance. Learn more.

This is a unique track at OLC Accelerate. While any of the previously listed tracks may include a research component, this is the only track dedicated to presenting formal research of completed or well-developed studies that relate to digital, online and/or blended learning. Learn more.

This track encompasses practices that improve the teaching and learning process in online,  blended, and digital, formal and informal, learning environments to create a positive impact. Learn more.
