eGeeking Q1 Highly. It’s a great way to expose yourself to new ways of doing things & new people in the industry. #Chat2Lrn   16:05:47
pattishank q1) I’ve always found it to be SUPER critical. IT’s at the top of my professional development (PD) list. #chat2lrn   16:05:52
megbertapelle Q1) I find it really energizing, and a good way to focus on learning new things – rather than squeeze it between reg. work tasks #chat2lrn   16:05:54
AndreaMay1 Q1) Pretty critical for me. One of the few times in a year to expand thinking beyond my org. #chat2lrn   16:06:15
megbertapelle RT @pattishank: q1) Ive always found it to be SUPER critical. ITs at the top of my professional development (PD) list. #chat2lrn   16:06:25
tomspiglanin A1) Many can’t attend conferences often; I was one, but joining colleagues IRL always re-energizes me; high importance. #chat2lrn   16:06:28
LearnPatch A1) Depends on what’s being shared – content matters but usually the conversation trumps that! #chat2lrn   16:06:30

pattishank q1) It’s a way to accomplish numerous PD things in a very short period of time. But you have to pick good conferences. #chat2lrn   16:07:08
megbertapelle Q1) If you are a good researcher & curator, you can get a lot out of shared resources in backchannel – but have to dedicate self #chat2lrn   16:07:15
eGeeking  @tomspiglanin Yeah, I’ll definitely second the “re-energizes me”. I come back full of energy and ideas. #Chat2Lrn   16:07:17

JudithELS @FionaQuigs Q1) You and me both! I must admit I use other ways of keeping up to date #chat2lrn   16:07:36

lesleywprice RT @pattishank: q1) Its a way to accomplish numerous PD things in a short of time. But you have to pick good conferences<+10 #chat2lrn   16:08:12
jimbobtyer Q1) depends on the conversations that happen before, during and after a conference. Not a fan of one-shot information-a-thons #chat2lrn   16:08:17
tomspiglanin A1) Socializing new ideas at conference generates even more. Difficult (not impossible) to duplicate that online. #chat2lrn   16:08:25
megbertapelle RT @FionaQuigs: Q1) I guess it depends on your job role. industry changes so fast, wonder if conferences are best way to keep up  #chat2lrn   16:08:26
AndreaMay1 @kristibroom Hi Kristi – glad to have you here today! #chat2lrn   16:08:28
NancyReyesNYC q1) allowed me to make connections that I would have never made.  I’m old school – still need the personal touch for some things. #chat2lrn   16:08:40
eGeeking @megbertapelle Agreed, but while I love the backchannel, I tend to get more personally out of in-person attendance #Chat2Lrn   16:08:43
lesleywprice RT @FionaQuigs: @JudithELS maybe its just us freelancers Judith 🙂 < they are expensive now 😦 #chat2lrn   16:08:44

ReadAhead1 #chat2lrn q1) I choose based on content that is relevant to projects I am working on that year/time period. Right now mlearning.   16:10:59
JudithELS Q2) Where it is, how much it costs, time I have available – sad I know but true #chat2lrn   16:11:12
megbertapelle Q2) topics and sessions – since I don’t necessarily know who the speakers are (sometimes I do), I rely on the descriptions #chat2lrn   16:11:12
lesleywprice @kelly_smith01 Hi Kelly….great you could join us!  #chat2lrn   16:11:13
FionaQuigs Q2) Wonder if a different culture in the US/Canada compared with UK for conferences. UK is smaller so likely to see ppl more. #chat2lrn   16:11:15
eGeeking Q2 What’s the con’s focus? Who’s speaking there on what topics? Can I afford to go? Could I present at it? #Chat2Lrn   16:11:18
tomspiglanin A2) Factor: what new things can I learn and is this the right crowd to learn them from? More imp than keynotes and tracks #chat2lrn   16:11:21

ReadAhead1 YES! @lesleywprice …wish I could attend more overseas events as I am sure there are cultural differences #chat2lrn   16:11:37
megbertapelle Q2) VERY helpful to have clear and detailed descriptions – early, so you can still get early-bird registration #chat2lrn   16:11:39
NancyReyesNYC Q2) Who is presenting? I prefer practitioners and not so much vendors. #chat2lrn   16:11:50
FionaQuigs RT @pattishank: q2) qual of topics, qual of speakers, qual of attendees #chat2lrn <how do you find that out?   16:11:51

pattishank RT @tomspiglanin: A2) Factor: what new things can I learn and is this the right crowd to learn them from?< Great pt #chat2lrn   16:12:01
AndreaMay1 Q2) topic areas, keynote speakers, overall focus of the conference. And size matters somewhat to me too. #chat2lrn   16:12:06
lesleywprice q2) went to a free conference recently great speakers no opportunity to ask questions or network  was not good! #chat2lrn   16:12:07

AndreaMay1 RT @nancyreyesnyc: Q2) Who is presenting? I prefer practitioners and not so much vendors. #chat2lrn <–Agree   16:12:42
martincouzins @lesleywprice unconference all the way! or maybe a bar camp style fringe event . . . #chat2lrn   16:12:44
JudithELS  @FionaQuigs I think there’s a difference between US vs UK. Sometimes in the UK it can be a bit like a ‘circus’! #chat2lrn   16:12:49
ReadAhead1 #chat2lrn Q1) In re: AECT I have had sentimental attachment- familiarity.   16:12:50
pattishank RT @FionaQuigs: <how do you find that out? Knowing stuff after time #chat2lrn   16:12:50
FionaQuigs RT @lesleywprice: q2) went to a free conference recently great speakers no opportunity to ask questions or network  was not good! #chat2lrn   16:12:52
eGeeking @FionaQuigs Hmmm. I feel like I see my UK Twitter buddies going off to conference more than my NA colleagues. #Chat2Lrn   16:12:58
anchalmanocha Q1. It’s required to meet face to face in conferences to network more than to learn. Could be my perception. #chat2lrn   16:12:59
megbertapelle Q2) this is first year I’ve been told I get to attend ONE conference for sure – so choosing is hard. budget is always big question #chat2lrn   16:13:01
lesleywprice a2) I also like conferences where side by side there is a good expo and free seminars  #chat2lrn   16:13:22
LearnPatch @lesleywprice – sorry that last tweet should have come from my alter ego #chat2lrn 🙂   16:13:23
megbertapelle RT @jimbobtyer: Q2) A lot of what others have said, but I also want a conference to push my boundaries < YES, what’s pnt othrwise #chat2lrn   16:13:26

FionaQuigs Q2) Practice changing is important – inspirational keynote are great, but need real pracitical applications, often lacking IMO  #chat2lrn   16:14:58
tomspiglanin @megbertapelle @jimbobtyer pushing boundaries is imp. but I often don’t know my boundaries until some serendipitous encounter #chat2lrn   16:15:03
jimbobtyer @megbertapelle me too Meg. There are too many! #chat2lrn   16:15:22
megbertapelle Q3) no role really – great bonus, but I’m not going to waste time/money on conf. just to get an eye-Pad – cheaper to buy one #chat2lrn   16:15:23
pattishank  @LearnPatch …Like shared convos and some confs are doing more with that #chat2lrn   16:15:31
JudithELS Q3) Are these incentives freebies, like iPads & such like or something else? #chat2lrn   16:15:35
lesleywprice q3) when I worked for a ‘cash-rich’ organisation…they were very important!  #chat2lrn   16:15:43

megbertapelle MT @tomspiglanin: @megbertapelle @jimbobtyer …but I often dont know my boundaries until some serendipitous encounter < true #chat2lrn   16:16:01
anchalmanocha Q3. I don’t think they play a role at all. #chat2lrn   16:16:02
tomspiglanin RT @chat2lrn: Q3) What role do registration incentives play in your choice? #chat2lrn   16:16:08
FionaQuigs Q3) I once got a signed photo of Billy Cosby – was only thing I remembered about the conference. Don’t detract from real value.  #chat2lrn   16:16:09
NancyReyesNYC RT @FionaQuigs: Q2) Practice changing is important – inspirational keynote are great, but need real pracitical applications,  #chat2lrn   16:16:11
lesleywprice RT @JudithELS: Q3) Are these incentives freebies, like iPads & such like or something else? <freebies  #chat2lrn   16:16:13
LearnPatch @pattishank agree – think the traditional conference set up is slowly changing (it has to) #chat2lrn   16:16:26
megbertapelle @jimbobtyer seriously! and if they’re later in the year, they haven’t solidified content yet, so makes even harder! #chat2lrn   16:16:31

eGeeking Q3 – What exactly do we mean by “registration incentives” here? #NewbieQuestion #Chat2Lrn   16:16:46
weelearning Q3 if you’re going to a conference because of the freebies you probably shouldn’t go at all #chat2lrn   16:16:55
AndreaMay1 Q3) When I see incentives advertised I look more closely at the conference but have not actuallt attended one based on that #chat2lrn   16:17:05
megbertapelle MT @FionaQuigs: Q3) …got a signed photo of Billy Cosby – only thing remembered about conference. Dont detract from real value.  #chat2lrn   16:17:09
FionaQuigs @pattishank even if you got a free ipad?  #chat2lrn   16:17:10
