Our Conference Theme

Disrupting the Distance: PimaOnline Educators' Conference 2023, Wednesday - Friday, Nov 1-3, 2023

The POEC23 conference theme is "Disrupting the Distance."  At this year's virtual conference, we aim to explore any practices or technology (including AI) that "disrupt" our current ways of teaching and learning and our previous ways of thinking and viewing distance education.   We also look closer at the question of how we, as educators and designers, can “disrupt the distance” and bring our diverse students and educators together online.
