How have we, as educators and support staff, responded to the continuing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic? What have we learned? What trends and issues have emerged, especially for online and blended learning? What will change going forward?

TCC Hawaii invites faculty, support professionals, librarians, counselors, student affairs professionals, graduate students, administrators, and consultants interested in learning technologies and evolving practices to submit proposals for online presentations.


The TCC 2022 Online Conference invites proposals for presentations and papers relevant to online teaching and learning with emerging technologies and transforming learning in innovative environments.
