The Conference is a unique peer-to-peer premier gathering of California Community College (and other institutions), faculty, staff, and administrators leading the way in developing innovative and effective online education. We will be looking for session proposals that challenge and engage by in-depth examination of relevant topics including equitable and culturally responsive strategies. We are particularly looking for engaging and creative proposals within the following tracks: Effective Practices, Support and Resources, Technology Innovation, Professional Development and Leadership and Evaluation.
Speakers are a large part of what makes a conference successful.

|Accessibility in the Online Environment
CCC Technology Center
(9:00am – 4:00pm)
The accessibility of instructional materials is an important consideration for engaging all students and supporting diverse learning styles. Join us as we discuss best practices and strategies for building accessibility into the online classroom. This workshop will offer participants hands-on activities and address a variety of accessibility topics related to your Canvas course, including the accessibility of MS Word and PDF content, and the steps for captioning YouTube and other media content. Bring Your Own Laptop (Mac or PC).
|Humanizing Your Online Course
(9:00am – 4:00pm)
Online students who relate to their instructor as something more than a subject matter expert and feel as if they belong to a group, are more likely to be motivated, be satisfied with their learning, and succeed in achieving the course objectives (Picciano, 2002; Rovai & Barnum, 2003; Richardson & Swan, 2003). These are the effects of humanized online learning. This workshop will present both the theory and practice of humanizing, discuss why humanizing is especially important to our underserved students, and provide you with practical strategies and tools to implement in your online course.
We've secured a block of rooms at the conference hotel, Hilton Anaheim, for a special rate, (while availability lasts, please book early).
Enjoy the opportunity to meet with a variety of attendees: faculty, deans, program/department chairs, and administrators, including CCC presidents from the 114 California Community Colleges, the UCs, CSUs, and other institutions.
Please email us so we can customize an OTC'18 package for you!
