Excited to see the Learning 2.012 conference is filling up fast. The conference that I helped to start back in 2007 continues to explore the meaning of what it means to be a modern day conference. Every year the committee plays with different formats and different ways to get participants involved in the learning process. The one thing this conference has never had is a keynote speaker with the committee always trying to find ways to get participants involved in the learning process.
For Learning 2.012 in October the breakdown of sessions looks like this:
- Two Extended Sessions led by Learning 2 Leaders (3 – 3.5 hours)
- One Learning 2 Leaders presentation: the big idea in a nutshell
- Two additional workshops or presentations
- Two ‘unconference’ sessions
- Three ‘cohort’ sessions in curriculum/common interest groupings
- Three sets of Learning 2 Talk sessions
I’m honored that after stepping down as a main conference organizer two years ago that the committee has asked me to stay involved and has again invited me back to be a learning leader. It is one of my favorite conferences to attend and be apart of for no other reason in that it’s just different from any other conference I’ve been to.
The Early Bird Registration ends this Friday (June 1st). If you haven’t registered already you might want to head on over and get registered quickly. After June 1st it will cost you an extra $50. I wouldn’t be so worried about the extra $50 as I would be that the conference will fill up. It’s limited to 500 participants.
Have you been to Learning 2.0 in the past? What have been your take aways from the conference?
If you are going in October what is it your looking forward to the most?
