Since 2005, the OLC Institute for Professional Development has been the leader in virtual learning opportunities for educators at any stage of their online teaching career.
What are the hot topics being discussed at your institution today? OLC offers a large and growing number of week-long and three-day workshops facilitated by experts in the field of online and digital education. Collaborate and learn with colleagues worldwide via synchronous and asynchronous methods.
The OLC Mastery Series Program emphasizes theory and application of research on key topics and culminates in a Recognition of Mastery in that designated area of study. Each series consists of three workshops that help you explore relevant research and use that research to help you design an effective teaching and learning environment.
OLC Online Teaching and Advanced Teaching Certificate Programs prepare new and experienced online educators to teach and improve online courses using the OLC pillars of quality in online education. The OLC Instructional Designer Certificate Program is for experienced online instructional designers, librarians, and multimedia specialists who work with online faculty and other online learning support professionals.
The Online Learning Consortium understands the difficulties facing all educational institutions in the path of the recent hurricanes and wild fires in the United States. Our thoughts and prayers are with those whose lives have been disrupted. We appreciate the importance of continuing operations of all institutions, and want to assure those affected that OLC stands ready to mobilize our global connections within the online learning community to support the needs of displaced learners and faculty. We also recognize there will be needs identified as various recovery stages commence. To help with these efforts, OLC will be reaching out to institutions in the region, including our community members, to identify opportunities to provide support as we learn more about those learners and institutions impacted by these storms.
