What professional development, technology, or pedagogy conferences have you attended that you find valuable? Which would you most highly recommend, and why?
(Providing a link for a conference page or professional organization would be appreciated as well!)

I attend the annual, The Alliance for Excellence in Online Education. Instructors from across the country attend this conference and share their latest online teaching stategies and ideas on how to keep students focused and engaged. http://www.a4eoe.org/
I also attended the Great Lakes Teaching Conference this year for the first time and was able to connect with insturctors from the across the Great Lakes region. I learned some really cool ideas on how to motivate and keep classes both online and on ground fun and interesting. Most sessions were interactve and gave some fantastic ideas on how keep the classroom alive! https://www.cmich.edu/office_provost/academic_development/CETL/Pages/default.aspx

The QM Connect conference (https://www.qualitymatters.org/events/attend/qm-connect-conference) is a great conference to learn and share ideas about quality in online teaching. I am attending it this year and also presenting, but have heard great things from several colleagues who have attended in the past. This year it's in Fort Worth, TX, in September and is held annually.
The OLC Innovate (https://onlinelearningconsortium.org/innovate/) is another conference to learn about innovations in online education, particularly using technology tools.
Hope these help. I mainly attend conferences that cover topics on online teaching and learning, so am sharing these with you. Looking forward to learn about some other new conferences on online teaching and pedagogy.

I attended the Conference on Higher Education Pedagogy at Virginia Tech 3 or 4 times. It's a great conference with lots of interaction and is very well-organized.

Good Morning All,
As an ambassador of student success, the conference I look forward to attending is the On Course Conference. This conference is usually held in April in Anaheim-Orange County, CA hosted by Dr. Skip Downing, author of the On Course textbook.
The conference has been helping colleges and universities improve student academic success and retention and over 50, 000 college educators have attended this conference. Also, when you go to the site, be sure to signup for their newsletter. The newsletter is filled with rich, learner-centered strategies for you to add to your toolkit of ideas.
