OLC Blended Learning Features Two Helix Education Sessions

The OLC Blended Learning Conference rolls into Denver this week, drawing a crowd of education innovators both passionate and curious about the digital future of higher education. Our team has been invited to present two thought provoking sessions on the emerging technologies, models, and processes behind this higher ed transformation.

  1. Personalized, Adaptive and Competency Based Education: Do You Know the Difference?
    Tuesday, July 7th at 5:30 p.m.
    Cherron Hoppes, who has extensive experience from within the walls of academia when it comes to learning outcomes assessment and curriculum design, will explore how these models work, and what they can mean to institutions and students. Attendees will determine how each approach aligns with their institution’s goals and objectives, and how they can implement one or more of them to drive increased student success.
  2. The Impact of Data on Student Retention
    Wednesday, July 8th at 11:20 a.m. (also streamed live for virtual attendees)
    Colleen McConeghy, who has worked closely with colleges and universities for more than a decade to implement tech-driven enrollment, retention, and teaching strategies, will guide attendees through proactive retention methodologies. She will review the types of data points institutions should be collecting and ways to apply that data in a student-centric manner to connect with, mentor, and motivate students. Attendees will learn how to aggregate, analyze, and act on this information to increase student retention.

As an organization also passionate and curious about the digital future of higher education, we are thrilled to be part of the dialog. We are also excited to be a National Platinum sponsor of the event and look forward to meeting with administrative leaders, instructors, faculty members, instructional designers, student advisors, and researchers as we collectively look to improve access and learning outcomes.

We hope to see you in the Mile High City!
