Invitation to Register for the OLC Blended Learning Symposium from 21-23 June 2023
June 21 @ 3:00 pm - June 23 @ 5:00 pm SAST
Dear Members of the SARUA Network,
SARUA is pleased to invite the members of its network to participate in the Online Learning Consortium’s upcoming 2nd Annual OLC Blended Learning Symposium which will be held onsite and online from June 21-23, 2023. The Online Learning Consortium (https://onlinelearningconsortium.org/) is an international collaborative community of higher education leaders and innovators, dedicated to advancing quality digital teaching and learning experiences designed to reach and engage the modern learner.
This year’s international symposium theme is “Leveraging Diverse Perspectives and Practices in Blended Learning Leadership“. Through diverse voices, we are inspired to highlight, connect, and contextualize new ideas that build upon each other. They help us innovate our approaches to blended teaching, learning, and leadership. Participation in the Symposium presents a unique opportunity to shape discussions around blended learning and to contribute to the development of a research report on blended learning research. Notes from last year’s participants were combined into the OLC Blended Learning Symposium 2022 Report. This report was created for individuals like you in mind, and to serve as a living memory of the 2022 BLS.
While the full registration price for the symposium (online or onsite) is $ 995, through SARUA’s Memorandum of Understanding with the OLC, we are pleased to offer our network members the following discounted rates.
