The TCC Worldwide Online Conference is hosted annually by University of Hawai'i, Kapi'olani Community College (KCC) and the University of Hawai'i at Manoa, Educational Technology Department in association with Osaka Gakuin University (Japan) and in partnership with LearningTimes.org in New York.
We are thankful for the perseverance and tireless effort of many volunteer colleagues, including our Advisory Panel and Editorial Board, for their help and thoughtfulness in making this annual event a success.
TCC is a virtual conference held annually online. This event is designed to enable faculty, staff and administrators in higher education worldwide share their expertise and engage in productive forums about innovations and practices that accompany the use of technology for faculty teaching and student learning.
In 1996, Dr. James Shimabukuro, Language Arts Professor at KCC, founded this conference. Professor Shimabukuro envisioned creating a global network for faculty to share expertise, research results and teaching experiences with one other. Professor Shimabukuro named this virtual conference; "Teaching in the Community Colleges,” after his email discussion list TCC-L.
In August 2004, the TCC conference was renamed the TCC Worldwide Online Conference. Following a lengthy discussion with advisory panel members and TCC 2004 participants, TCC now represents Technology, Colleges and Community.
The TCC conference runs on a real-time schedule, with a starting date and a closing date. It also includes activities such as live presentations and chat sessions that begin and end at a given times. The conference theme changes annually in order to focus on and dialog current and controversial issues about using technology for teaching and learning.
