Virtual Conference Learning ConferenceAttending a conference in-person is not always an option. Budget constraints, scheduling, and getting approvals can often prevent you and your staff from participating as attendees, or even presenters. 

More and more, we see virtual conference options being offered – either an entire virtual conference, or the virtual attendance option for an on-site conference. These live virtual learning experiences have extensive benefits (and limited drawbacks) if they’re well produced and facilitated.

The Producer Perspective

I have been producing and facilitating virtual conferences for several organizations for the past five years. These are virtual tracks at the conferences, meaning that we broadcast only specific sessions that are taking place on-site. This gives attendees a multi-day experience with sessions chosen from the overall schedule to be streamed live.

Training Conferences Personal Learning Pathways Remember the adage “the cobbler’s children have no shoes?” It’s a reference to the fact that we tend to be so focused on using our expertise and special talents to help others, that we neglect our own needs.

Let’s face it, all this virtual, online learning is great. But getting together to learn can be energizing, and fun! An in-person training conference can be a great learning opportunity that keeps you connected to trends, new training approaches, and can expand your personal learning network.

atd techknowledge ATDTK

I'll tell you a secret. I enjoy speaking at ATD TechKnowledge more than I do ATD ICE. The people at this conference are so focused on a common goal - using EdTech to support the learning function. Everyone you talk to has a story to tell and a problem to solve - and I believe I learn more from the attendees then they learn from me!

If you attended and have feedback or would like to continue the conversation reach out to me on Twitter @InSyncJennifer #ATDTK.
