Education is, and always will be, a changing environment. That is why, as educators, we will always be looking to improve the way we teach and learn. With the continued reduction of resources to higher education, it is more important now than ever to be working across departmental and institutional silos. This is where OLC and ELD can help.

 

OLC and ELD have a community of faculty, instructional designers, librarians, and more that share an interest in pedagogy and how technology can better enhance or transform it.
