Godzilla vs. DemoFest

After attending my second DevLearn, it was only inevitable that my face would eventually end up as promotional fodder for the eLearning Guild. It’s a wonderful picture! </sarcasm>

But thank goodness Bianca Woods was there to save me from my self-consciousness:

Inspired by the Dinosaur Comics presented in her session, I came up with some captions! If you’ve got  your own Godzilla quotes, make sure to add them in the comments.

"I think your next button needs more green."

"Does the text to speech handle Japanese?"

"But can I use the webcam to see if they're not paying attention?"

*Actual product. Complete madness.

DevLearn 2013

It’s late October again and you know what that means… I’m headed to Vegas!

View from the Aria

Whereas last year was a desperate attempt to capture every bit of knowledge from every session I attended, my goal this year is to absorb the things that I see and hear and actually create something that’s a little more coherent. Things have been a little hectic of late, and I haven’t had as much writing or reflection time as I’d like. Leaving work to focus on my own learning and development offers up the chance to spend some time doing just that.

And let’s be honest, no city inspires quiet reflection like Las Vegas 🙂

If you’re not attending (or attending and sitting in other sessions), stay tuned to this site or my twitter for the information deluge (as well as the conference backchannel!). My tentative session schedule for the conference looks like this:

    How Museums Use Mobile Technologies to Shape User Experiences – Nancy Proctor
    Transmedia Storytelling: A New Strategy for Learning – Lee Lindsey
    Transfer Learning and Become More Profitable: The Science of Behavior Change – Art Kohn
    Is eLearning Broken? Challenges for Innovation – panel
    Not Just for Superheroes: Exploring Learning Through Comics – Bianca Woods
    Portfolios As Tools for Professional Learning – Sylwia Bielec, Thomas Stenzel
    AGILE Instructional Design: Keeping Pace with the Speed of Change – Conrad Gottfredson
    How to Deliver Measurable Behavioral Change Using Technology – Neil Lasher

With so many interesting sessions, it’s been a lot harder to narrow things down this year so, as always, it’s all subject to change.
