Colleague 2 Colleague

Colleague to Colleague (C2C) originated as the staff development sub-group of the Heartland Alliance, but subsequently has become a professional association of faculty, staff and administrators from the Greater Midwest. Our goal is to share technology expertise, resources, and training with a special emphasis on distance education and instructional technology, for colleagues in K-12, higher education, government, non-profits, and education-related commercial sectors. 

We hope that this website will serve as a gateway for students and educators to information and resources related to distance education and instructional technology. Participating institutions in C2C include Kansas or Missouri technical and community colleges, State Regents universities, as well as private institutions of higher education with common interests and goals.

C2C cosponsors the Summer Institute on Distance Learning and Instructional Technology (SIDLIT–pronounced “sidelight”), in coordination with a local institution of higher education.

Colleague 2 Colleague (C2C), a chartered professional organization, is designed to facilitate the exchange of information and expertise between faculty and staff involved or interested in instructional technology, online instruction, and distance education. The organization’s primary focus is on staff development and collaboration between the community colleges, technical colleges, and universities in the Kansas and Missouri bi-state region.
