The summit, to be held July 13-14, will provide a forum and support for all colleagues across higher education and help them design the most effective and engaging experiences for learners. Leading educators with extensive practical online and blended teaching and learning experience drawn from across global universities and colleges are being gathered to present immediately useful and evidence-backed practices on both subject-specific and general online teaching techniques.

Over 60 half-hour sessions selected by a group of nationally respected higher education experts will be presented at the summit. There will be two broad categories of presentation - "Disciplines" and "Topics" - all led by faculty members and master practitioners drawn from institutions across the country. The Disciplines sessions are led by faculty who are currently running large successful online courses, and they will share their perspectives on best practices, pedagogy, techniques and tools to provide actionable insights around teaching their discipline to colleagues preparing courses for fall 2020. The Topics sessions will offer intelligence and tips to support all disciplines, and specific issues addressed will include diversity and inclusion in the online classroom, effective assessment, mixed-mode teaching and techniques to promote student engagement and well-being.
