Explore the TCC Worldwide Online Conference

online conferenceWe’re all faced with limited professional development resources these days. Fortunately, there are several online learning experiences that allow us to both develop our skills and share our expertise and experience with others. The TCC Worldwide Online Conference is one of these events. (TCC = Teaching Colleges and Community)

TCC is organized by Learning Times and the Learning Design and Technology (LTEC) Department of the College of Education at the University of Hawaii-Manoa. It’s a professional conference that is run completely online! I’ve attended and presented at this conference multiple times over the years and highly recommend it to those who are active in a wide range of education, technology, and student support efforts.
