Free-Learning Conference 2018

July 20th, 2018

This year we're planning a free, full-day online conference using the web conferencing tool Zoom. The Free-Learning Conference 2018 #FLCon18 will be a day of exploration designed to promote and evaluate effective uses of technology for teaching and learning while also providing opportunities to network with others in the field of higher education.

This year, we're taking the conference online for virtual delivery via Zoom and recording sessions to be made available after the conference. This change with allow a broader range of presenters and participants beyond those who could attend in person.
