Based on the popular series of Jossey-Bass guidebooks on online teaching and learning, an upcoming OTL Conference Online will bring all of the books' authors - as well as a community of hundreds of professionals worldwide - together for interactive online sessions, discussions, hands-on learning, strategy swapping, and networking.

The two-day online conference is preceded by a special one-day Pre-Conference Program entitled "Social Presence and Community-Based Approaches to Online Learning." The Pre-Conference workshops will be led by faculty members of Fielding Graduate University and will take place October 6, 2008. The unique program features three live, one-hour interactive webcasts as well as on-demand discussion forums for participants to interact with session leaders and other registrants at any time.
