#GuildChat for 03/25/16: Pre to Post: Learning Through the Conference Experience

Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday, March 25 at 11am PT / 2pm ET. Our topic for this week’s chat is Pre to Post: Learning Through the Conference Experience.GuildChat_Logo

Attending an industry conference can be an opportunity for a rich experience filled with social, informal and formal learning opportunities. It can be equally overwhelming if one doesn’t have a plan.

Learning through a conference experience begins before attending and continues well after as you return from your learn flow to your work flow.  What are the strategies being employed and the tools used to maximize the experience of the conference event? On the heels of the Learning Solutions Conference & Expo, we explore this question and a host of others to learn the approaches being taken by the community to make the most of the immersive experience of the conference.

The eLearning Guild has always looked to the community to form the conversations around learning and technology. We’ve taken it a step further however and created a rotating group of  voluntary #GuildChat Advisors! Each Advisor is selected for their unique perspectives and involvement in the the conversations around the learning industry. For a 6 month period they will help formulate the topics and questions for our weekly chat. Have an idea for #GuildChat? Reach out to @britz or any of the current advisors!
