The Distance Teaching & Learning Conference has helped educators stay on top of emerging technologies for over 30 years. It attracts college faculty, instructional designers, K-12 teachers, corporate and military trainers, and vendors of new technologies and services, who network with colleagues and learn evidence-based strategies from experts in the field.
The 2016 conference will be held at Monona Terrace, the architectural gem designed by Frank Lloyd Wright on a picturesque lake. The conference will provide an immersive learning experience in a city consistently voted one of the country’s top getaways.
