That was a helpful recap. I missed this year's DevLearn conference and am curious to know more about not centering L&D content strategies on courses. We're working on our strategy, so this is relevant. Do you have any additional notes or links you can point me to? I'm also curious about the antagonists approach to compliance training. Is there any way to access Neil's "How to Launder Money" course? I'd love to see how he approached it. I do a lot of compliance training and am always looking to make it more relevant and focused on learning/performance outcomes rather than checking the box. Thanks!
Your comments on Ruth Clarke's session, regarding people learning better from simpler content, but preferring more complex content, were interesting. That seems to tie in very well with concepts like "Flow" (with it's balance between challenge and skill) and "Friction" in learning. Good food for thought.
I think this is an exemplary conference: you've captured what struck you as pertinent, and you've made connections between the enthusiasm that a good conference rouses, and the reality of life back on the job. Mindful, practical, optimistic.If more people did this, they'd get more out of whatever conferences they attended.
Thanks for the great recap, and for this example of blogging for reporting, reflecting, and action planning. I had so much great feedback on my Ignite presentation I expect we'll be seeing it in longer form at a conference coming soon. Great seeing you in the jetlagged flesh -- thanks for being such a great participant. -- Jane
@jleffron Hi. Thanks for reading and commenting. Do you have any links to further reading on the areas you've mentioned?
@Dave Ferguson Hi Dave, many thanks for reading and commenting. I really appreciate your feedback and I'm glad you were able to spot the balance I was trying to achieve between post-conference enthusiasm and the 'real world'
