The eLearning Guild ‘s DevLearn was a blast, as always.  I was so involved that I hardly got to see any sessions, but had great conversations.  And there’s quite a bit of travel coming up.  On Wed I depart to La Jolla to attend WCET’s conference , where I’ll be talking on mobile learning.  On Dec 13-14, we’ll be running an ITA event in Maastricht, and then on the 16th, we’ll have one in London.  If you’re interested in working smarter and the future of organizational learning, and you’re in Europe, you should try to hit one.
