What I've been up to lately - June 2013

Who'd have guessed it... I actually do more than just write on my blog and rant about Comic Sans on Twitter. If you're curious to know what I've been up to elsewhere (and WILL be up to later this summer), then this is the post for you.

L & D Global Events - Review of the Learning Solutions 2013 Conference and Expo
My coworker, Frank Morris, and I collaborated on a short review of the Learning Solutions conference we both attended earlier this year. Come for the concise evaluation of the conference... stay for the terrible photograph of me in mouse ears!

ASTD Learning Technologies blog - Choosing Technology Strategically
This article marks my first contribution to this blog, and what better way to mark the occasion than by writing a rant. In this case, I decided to chat about one of my biggest pet peeves: when people choose an "all-or-nothing" approach to learning technology. Yup.... 'cause nothing's more annoying than when someone says "We're going to make all our content _____"!

The Virtual Learning Show - June 27th, 2013 - Panel Discussion: How Can Emerging Technology Enrich Our Offerings And Add Value To Our Business?
Oh look, it's a thing that (at least, as I'm writing this post) is happening in the future!

Out of everything I'm doing this summer, this is one of the things I'm most excited about. I'll be teaming up with a bunch of brilliant people from around the globe (Yes, seriously. Thanks to the joys of Adobe Connect, we've got panelists from Canada, the UK, Australia, and the US) to chat for an hour about emerging technology and training. Not only is this conference free (yup. FREE), you can actually submit questions for the panel to answer using this handy Google Docs page. We're definitely looking forward to a wide variety of questions, so I'd love it if you could add one or two things to the list.

My session is running on June 27th from 15:30-16:30 UK BST (Yes, this is London time. Convert as necessary for your own time zone). I should also note, though, that this session is just one of many running on the two conference dates (June 20th and 27th), and I highly recommend checking out the other sessions as well. You can register for one or both days of the conference by clicking the Booking tab at the top of the conference website.
