2020 IU Online Conference



Full course description

About the Conference

This conference is unlike any we’ve had before—and not just because it’s virtual. We’re pleased to bring you diverse webinar topics that showcase just how many viewpoints, ideas, and resources make up online education.

From designing a forensic laboratory science course online, to teaching music and arts online, to practicing mindfulness in the classroom and more, we’re finding new meanings to the phrase Sustaining Student Success.
