The agenda for the ITC 2014 Distance Education Leadership Academy is participant-driven and will include readings and online discussion work prior to meeting in Prince Edward Island. The face-to-face meetings will include three days filled with discussions with eLearning experts and practitioners, hand's on activities, group work and reflection.
This summer we will meet in the stunning, picturesque holiday spot of Charlottetown, in Prince Edward Island, Canada. If you are traveling from outside Canada, you will want to make sure your passport is in order. We will meet on the campus of our wonderful host institution, Holland College, the community college of Prince Edward Island.

ITC has reserved a room block of sleeping rooms in Glendenning Hall, the summer residences at Holland College, which is pleased to offer Academy participants a rate of $89 dollars Canadian per night, plus taxes, for a double or single room.
