What past attendees have said about DT&L

 This is the best conference I have ever attended. I am coming away with so many new ideas and professional connections. Excellent attention to detail and thoughtful planning made this a memorable event that touched me personally and professionally. It is very clear why this conference has so many repeat attendees. I loved it! 

 DT&L is like a group of my best friends who become quite animated while discussing something we all love. I’ve attended two years now and each time have taken so much knowledge home as well as additions to my network. This only strengthens my ability to partner with my faculty. We’re all dealing with the same challenges. It’s knowing that there are others in which I can connect that makes the journey less daunting. 

 The vendor displays were a wonderful opportunity to visit with the companies and get detailed information about products and services that can enhance your online teaching. Networking opportunities were fantastic, and the facilities and staff were top notch. I can’t wait to come back! 

Thank you to our 2020 sponsors
