Big Names, Big Ideas at the Distance Teaching & Learning Conference

We are honored to have some of the nation’s leading experts in online and distance education as keynote speakers at this year’s Distance Teaching & Learning Conference. Richard Culatta, Michelle Miller, and Karl Kapp complement one another to bring groundbreaking insights that can transform how we teach and learn with technology. You can get a glimpse into what they will be talking about by reading our interviews from the blog with the conference keynote speakers.


Richard Culatta is the former director of the Office of Educational Technology for the U.S. Department of Education, where he focused on educational innovation. In his keynote, “Technology as a Tool to Reimagine Learning,” he’ll discuss the latest strategies for creating personalized learning. He’ll also focus on how to enhance the user experience in online course design.
