The NextLevelED Conference (NLC) is a sub-conference of CCC TechConnect’s Online Teaching Conference and funded by the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office, Digital Infrastructure and Innovation Division, under the Shared Infrastructure Projects (SIP) Grant.

The goals of this inaugural NLC are to offer attendees – targeting both students and employees – hands on sessions, networking opportunities, and direct contact with technical companies in order for them to attain the knowledge and skills necessary to create clear pathways to employment and/or further education; provide an opportunity for IT faculty, staff, administrators, and students to learn about education technology and how/what can be implemented in their classrooms, campuses, or individual use; demonstrate options for transforming education using technology; and identify technical-focused career options and requirements to successfully enter/advance into those career paths.
