What does the future hold for distance education? Hundreds of higher education professionals and workforce trainers have a better idea after attending the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s 2017 conference.

At Frank Lloyd Wright’s lakeside Monona Terrace Convention Center, they explored disruptive design, the next-generation digital learning environment, and other topics on the leading edge of educational innovation. With help from experts in the field, they learned the latest pedagogical techniques and technological tools for engaging learners. And they had fun, networking with colleagues from around the world while enjoying Wisconsin’s lovely capital city.
