Bounding Forward: Learning Design Principles For Maximizing Conference Engagement
Concurrent Session 1
Conferences tend to be a wellspring of energy, resources and collaboration, but quite often it is hard to keep the connections going after leaving the live experience. Even more difficult, perhaps, is knowing where to start when joining in for the first time asynchronously after the live conference has ended. This session will resituate learning design principles often used in our work to help participants maximize the benefits of conferences. Participants will take part in a series of lightweight activities to reflect on their own experience at OLC Innovate 2020, and learn several new practices for making every conference, convening or summit as impactful as possible. This presentation seeks to bend space and time, creating a point of engagement that can be completed live or later asynchronously as an on-demand professional development activity.
This presentation also seeks to rock you like a hurricane with sweet tunes and collaborative reflections. Whether you are watching this session live or watching back as an on-demand recording, grab a warm beverage and join us in crowdsourcing new ways to turn conferences into a launch pad for deeper engagement within and across our field writ large.
