A new feature of the Summit is the eDesign Collaborative (eDC) package. This special package includes the eDesign Collaborative ThinkTank pre-conference, as well as general and concurrent sessions at the 2017 Summit for Online Leadership on June 14, 2017.
The Think Tank is an 'un-conference' experience designed to support collaboration and learning among instructional design teams. With over 500 members already affiliated with the eDC, the Think Tank is an exciting opportunity to share challenges and highlight successes of the teams that support online teaching and learning.

Evolution of Learning Design
Curated by the UPCEA eDesign Collaborative
The growth of online learning models has broadened the skillset required for developing digital learning experiences beyond instructional design. This session will explore structures and frameworks for learning design teams to address the next generation of digital educational challenges; and how user and data-informed design decision making, prototyping, beta and pilot releases can impact student experiences.
