Join us for a remarkable evening of celebration and reflection as we commemorate 50 years of the Open and Distance Learning Association of Australia (ODLAA) – a journey that has transformed education and fostered connections across Australasia.
From 1973 to present, our mission has been to foster excellence in open and distance education across Australia, New Zealand, the South Pacific, and neighbouring regions. From the founding president Kevin Smith of the University of New England to the present day, we’ve dedicated ourselves to improving, innovating, and connecting educators in the field.
Throughout the evening, we encourage you to connect, collaborate, and exchange ideas with colleagues and friends. Dinner and drinks will be provided.
