The Speakers Series is one of the outreach efforts hosted by UMassOnline’s Observatory on Policy and Practice in Online Learning. The intent of the Speakers Series is to contribute to the development of a broad community of people and organizations who are interested in distance and online education. The series provides a low barrier forum for discussion, generate open resources, and serve to catalyze a learning community.

The Speakers Series is free and open access. If you have interest in participating in the series, helping out, or have a recommendation for a potential speaker, please feel free to share your thoughts.  Be sure to check the upcoming events, as well as view recordings and materials from past events, or Watch this Page to receive updates as new speakers are added, comments are posted and past event resources are posted.
