This group is comprised of representatives of OCULL member institutes and focuses on best practices, challenges, and opportunities in distance education and online learning. It engages in liaison with government and various agencies and affiliates, advocates on behalf of adult distance learners, seeks outside funding to support research, and undertakes collaborative projects. The Distance and Online Learning Community of Practice meets online throughout the year with a goal to share information and support each other in a spirit of continuous learning and development. This group also contributes to the planning of the annual OCULL retreat to ensure that relevant distance education themes are incorporated into the program.
