Technology and Distance Learning Symposium banner

Presented by OTAN, the Outreach and Technical Assistance Network

March 1 and 2, 2024

The Technology and Distance Learning Symposium is OTAN’s annual conference with dynamic, hands-on presentations and lively discussions that show participants how to integrate technology to enhance the learner experience, extend the classroom to learners through blended and distance learning, and help adult education programs be more effective and efficient.

TDLS is ideal for teachers, coordinators, administrators, and support staff at California adult education agencies as well as adult education staff who work at school districts, community colleges, community or faith-based organizations, volunteer literacy organizations, public or private nonprofit agencies, public libraries, state agencies, and correctional facilities.
