Innovative Educator Conference

Vol State and APSU are partnering together to provide the Innovative Educator Conference in Clarksville, TN March 16 - 18, 2016. 

As distance education administrators, instructors, and staff, we are challenged daily to transform higher education and keep it on the cutting-edge of progress. Our collective objective is to fulfill the ever changing needs of our 21st century students by providing the newest and most effective technologies, services, and pedagogies. The Innovative Educator Conference (IEC) offers a venue in which to innovate and inspire each other - to create a community for progress.

Whether you are teaching in the classroom or online, writing the curriculum or designing the courses, running the learning management system or other technologies, working with online students, faculty, staff or technology in any way, you will find information and support at IEC to innovate and inspire student success on your campus.

IEC Call for Proposals is open through October 15!
