About MOLLI

Our Mission

Effective and visionary leadership is essential for institutional success in the rapidly evolving 21st century, technology-mediated educational marketplace. MOLLI provides the foundational skills for those who wish to be leaders for online learning and higher education in Maryland and beyond. We inspire, build new and enhanced skills, and establish a community of leadership through an ongoing, project-based curriculum. MOLLI’s guiding principle is that leadership skills are learned and practical for all professionals at all organizational levels.

With a focus on professional development for online learning professionals, MOLLI enhances the competencies of higher education administrators who support distance and technology-mediated learning, including directors, librarians, instructional designers, instructional technologists, IT managers, and other staff, as well as faculty with managerial roles.

 

MOLLI is an immersive experience designed for a small cohort and features exceptional speakers. The curriculum consists of individual components and peer group discussions and activities, including experiential activities, self-reflection, and practical interaction with recognized leaders in the online learning community.
