The Technology, Colleges and Community Worldwide Online Conference (TCC Online Conference) is a virtual, professional development event held annually online. This event enables faculty, staff, students and administrators in higher education worldwide to share their expertise and engage in discussions about innovations and practices related to the use of technology for teaching and learning.
TCC runs on a real-time schedule, with starting and ending dates and times. It includes activities such as live presentations and discussion sessions that begin and end at set times throughout the day. The conference theme focuses on current trends and issues related to technologies for teaching and learning.
Participation involves using a computer or mobile device with a web browser to access online sessions from the comfort of your home, office, or wherever a broadband (wi-fi) connection is available.
