CannInovate Logo 2017Registration is now open for Can•Innovate 2017, an education technology conference dedicated to faculty, staff and administrators from the California Community Colleges (CCC).

Hosted by American River College on Aug. 14, 2017, the event is centered on successes, creativity and best practices within the online education environment when both faculty and technology come together.

The conference is the first of its kind, and its name – Can•Innovate – reflects the system’s desire to continually seek and provide innovative programming to address the changing landscape of education. The conference agenda aims to inspire attendees with practical examples, encourage lively discussions and brainstorm dynamic ideas that serve to continue enriching the online education environment of the CCC.

Evolution Of Education, Student Success

Most discussions will revolve around leveraging the Canvas course management tool – which is now available at 105 California community colleges – and presenters will share their experience and expertise on embedding Canvas technology into their instruction.

This year’s conference keynote speaker is Jory Hadsell, Executive Director of the CCC Online Education Initiative (OEI). On the systemwide level, the OEI is an innovative response by the state of California and the CCC Chancellor’s Office to address the evolution of education and foster success for CCC students. The OEI’s goal is to allow community college students greater opportunity to attain their educational goals through increased access to high-quality online instruction and student support services.

The conference registration fee is $20. Faculty and staff are encouraged submit presentations that showcase innovative ways they embed Canvas into their instruction.
