I am very stoked about this year’s Elearning Guild’s Annual Gathering! This will be my first time attending this conference, but I’m even more excited because I’m also conducting one of the concurrent sessions as well as facilitating a talk at the ID Zone.
I’ve had my blinders on putting all the pieces and parts together in the last few weeks. From one who attends various other conferences with concurrent sessions, I’ve found myself in the middle of the room in one of the most boring presentations ever and not knowing if I should just get up and leave. I’ve put a lot of time into this presentation and I often question whether or not I’ll end up over doing it or worse, missing something.
My goal is not so much to share my theory, but to entertain and for folks to really “get” something to take away. Seriously, with all the other sessions going on at the same time, what prompts someone to attend one over the other? My guess is the same as the way I would choose. In some cases it’s the speaker because I’ve heard him/her before or I’ve read their work and want to “hear” them. Other times the title of the session and its description catches my attention. Sadly, sometimes none of the available sessions interest me and I blindly point at my program and let fate choose for me…that’s worked out well at times and not so well at other times.
Well, I’m not a well-known speaker nor am I authored, so I’m banking on the title here…
If you’re not too tired and burnout, come check out my session on Thursday afternoon, March 12 at 4:00 PM. Session #809 – “Graphic Symbols – The 5th Language”
Hopefully, by 8:45 AM on Friday, you’re still in town and may still be interested to attend the ID Zone – “Great ID, but No Graphic Designer: What Are My Options?”
Looking forward to seeing everyone and meeting new faces! One thing I can promise…you will NOT be bored!
