This year’s conference, titled, “To the Future and Beyond:  The new face of online education,” will explore current trends in open and distance education and consider what the online learning landscape (and higher education) will look like in five, ten, or fifteen years.    The one-day program for this year’s conference will include our keynote speaker,  Bryan Alexander, Senior Fellow of the National Institute for Technology in

Liberal Education who will be speaking on the emerging trends of online education.  In addition, afternoon sessions will include a panel discussion on Empire State College and the Open SUNY initiative and a choice of concurrent sessions and presentations exemplifying or discussing the current trends and future of online learning (all sessions to be offered onsite AND virtual).     Save the date and mark your calendars for the 2014 CDL Conference!
