The Online Learning Consortium (OLC) is a collaborative community of higher education leaders and innovators, dedicated to advancing quality digital teaching and learning experiences designed to reach and engage the modern learner – anyone, anywhere, anytime. OLC inspires innovation and quality through an extensive set of resources, including best-practice publications, quality benchmarking, leading-edge instruction, community-driven conferences, practitioner-based and empirical research and expert guidance. The growing OLC community includes faculty members, administrators, trainers, instructional designers and other learning professionals, as well as educational institutions, professional societies and corporate enterprises.
“I am excited for the opportunity to serve the OLC community, particularly during this important time in digital higher education,” Niemiec states. “OLC is the premier professional organization focused on quality digital teaching and learning.”
Mary will work alongside the OLC Board of Directors as they continue to set the global standard in online and digital learning. In addition, she will assist the OLC in its mission to create community and connections around quality online and digital learning while driving innovation.
