Call for Opening
To share the latest knowledge, ideas, insights, and information in the field of ODL, the AAOU organizes web conferences. Academics, scholars, and experts who wish to share useful and practical knowledge or skills on an ODL topic with our colleagues are invited to become our speakers and give a talk at an AAOU web conference. A speaker must be an expert in the area/field that he/she presents. If you are interested in sharing ODL topics with practitioners and scholars in the field, please send a proposal to us at secretariat@aaou.org and provide details of the contents to be shared in the web conference.
