otc16 san diego marina 280x230The Online Teaching Conference 2016 is pleased to announce the welcome and keynote presentation will be delivered by a leading digital expert and former educator who works for a Fortune 100 high-tech company.

Titled, “The Mobility Revolution,” the keynote presentation will examine the disruptive force of mobile technology on long-held assumptions about teaching, classroom-based learning and access to content. Because instructional best practices are always evolving, the talk will not be about showcasing the latest tech fads. It will explore the profound possibilities of leveraging a mobile-connected world to create authentic, differentiated, transformative experiences for all learners.

Being held June 16-17 at the San Diego Convention Center, the Online Teaching Conference offers discount early-bird registration ($225) through April 15, with general pricing ($275) offered from April 16 through June 8. On-site registration ($350) will also be available. Breakfasts and lunches are included in the conference registration price. Register now!
