Policy, Regulation and Governance in Distance Education

ALL sessions will be end-user led, with clear descriptions that share best practices within the world of distance and digital learning. There will be improved post-session accommodations along with focused “power sessions” that eliminate fluff and get right into the important details on the topic as well as pre and post-conference virtual sessions so that they are truly immersive rather than appearing as add-ons.

Featured speakers include:

Joe Sallustio, Senior VP, Lindenwood Global and Co-Author of “Commencement” giving detailed insight and an updated on his book in Commencement – A New Era in Higher Education Update. Colleges and universities that provide millions of degree and non-degree credentials each year are a vital backbone of communities and economies. These institutions elevate the critical-thinking capacities of students and learners, and they provide crucial job skills and life skills to emerging workforces. But the skills we need, the ways in which we collaborate, and the very jobs available to graduates are changing. It’s time for higher education to start anew. It’s time for Commencement into a new era.

And many other notable presenters from all over the country. A detailed program is available on the conference website.
