Clark Quinn

I just received a question that I'm sure often is on the minds of people in eLearning - which conference they should attend (eLearning Guild DevLearn or ASTD TechKnowledge). Here's was the specific question (and all the information I have to go on) to help advise this person - I have been trying to decide whether to attend DevLearn 2008 or ASTD TechKnowledge in 2009.

I’ll confess that I may not have been at the ASTD conference every day this past week, but I do have some impressions of the event I’d like to share. I was a little disappointed that ASTD decision makers, whoever you are, did not put the eLearning vendors together. ASTD is an interesting “club” of volunteers and staff with a somewhat bureaucratic culture. ” Tags: ASTD Elaine Biech Game Based Learning

ASTD Keynote - Talent Managment

Clark Quinn

I'm at the ASTD Conference in San Diego at the general session. Tony Bingham, ASTD CEO, is talking about and showing videos around talent management. It looks like there are about 5,000 people in the room. A complete guess at the number, but pretty good size. It's interesting to see the message be around talent management when often that's fairly separate from the learning function.

ASTD’s International Conference and Exposition is a massive, thoroughly capitalist, and rather carnivalesque convergence of people working in corporate talent development, along with the companies and consultants who sell to them.

February 2-4, 2011 San Jose, CA I'll be teaching four hands-on Captivate sessions at ASTD's fast-approaching TechKnowledge conference.

They will come together alongside 70 exhibitors in the learning technology space to learn, network, and move people forward through the application of learning and technology

ASTD no more

Jay Cross

Vendors of packaged training courses filled ASTD’s exhibit halls. Members of the Instructional Systems Association, a group of business owners, wryly called ASTD “the union.” The Board enlisted the help of identity consultants and branding experts and eventually decided on a new name: ASTD. People would refer to ASTD, the American Society for Training and Development. . It’s wise for ASTD to drop training from its name.
